Skillshare has just released this terrific 16-minute tutorial video with celebrated New York-based graphic designer Jon Contino. This is a must-watch for any aspiring illustrators or designers out there. Jon is a great teacher, and here he walks you through creating a graphic for a bandana from start to finish in a single afternoon.

Art and design school’s really have to step up their technical teaching with great content like this available online for free. Watch “Inside The Studio with Jon Contino” below.
