Heads up for any illustrators and designers out there! Skillshare is currently offering a special deal for Booooooom readers! 3 months of Skillshare Premium for $1. This gives you access to over 2,500 premium classes, with excellent step by step video tutorials, taught by many artists we’ve featured on Booooooom.

Now I haven’t tried out all 2,500+ classes but I have been slowly making my way through a bunch of them to find some worth recommending to you guys. The stills above are from Jessica Hische’s Drop Cap Letterform class, one of the 8 classes I curated for our special Booooooom page. Other classes I’d recommend are Jon Burgerman’s doodling class, Julia Rothman’s class on how to create repeating patterns, and Meg Lewis’ Basics of Photoshop.

Full disclosure, if you sign up through our special landing page it does support us! No pressure whatsoever, though! Even if you don’t wanna use our link, their site is still worth checking out! Platforms like these are going to put a lot of schools out of business.

You can watch previews of the classes by Jon Burgerman, Julia Rothman, and Jessica Hische below!
