I am taking a class on Skillshare.com called: Intro to Surface Pattern Design: Learn Adobe Illustrator | Create Patterns.
It is a terrific class and I am learning A LOT!
Here is my very first repeat.
I think it turned out pretty cute for a first try!
I can see that I am going to be playing around with this A LOT.
And, if that is not enough, I am also enrolled in a couple of calligraphy classes, a class on creative self-portrait photography and a class on creating visual narratives.
If any of that sounds interesting to you (plus there are hundreds of other classes) you should give it try.
