Description

Doodles! A lot of doodles! What can be more coolly than doodles? Only the doodle letters! In this 30 min, very simple and fun class we will begin with the basic forms. Then we’ll create the first characters. Screaming, chattering, fallen in love, admiring, crazy and really really different! If only all of them could be located on your artboard! And at the end of a lesson, they will unite, and will show what are capable of, having turned into letters (and with your help maybe in words!).

Who knows what it will lead to!

And, of course, I will tell you everything that I only know about them, that the Doodle family grew and prospered!

All template files are included as a free download, and you are welcome to use the files however you want, or simply to follow along with the projects as we move through the lessons.

Who is the target audience?
  • You're a designer and you need new ideas for graphics and print materials for your company
  • Anyone who wants to learn Illustrator, but don't know where to start
  • Ideally, you are someone who would consider yourself as “creative” and you often find yourself doodling on a notebook or napkin. You notice artwork around you, and when you see cool graphics on posters or in catalogs and brochures, you stop to admire them and wonder how they are made.
