Pattern Camp with Jessica Swift!

I wanted to poke my head out of my creative hole for a moment to share with you Jessica Swift's upcoming e-course "Pattern Camp: Learn Pattern Design in a Weekend"!

If you are an aspiring pattern designer and are ready to take your passion to the next level, and learn the skills you need to create beautiful patterns, this course is for you! What I love about it, is that it is a weekend long. An intensive focus on pattern design where you come out with the skills you need.

I had the wonderful opportunity of having dinner with Jessica back in January and we completely clicked. Instant friends. Wonderful human being. I also had the immense pleasure of being interviewed by Jessica for her Pattern Camp course. This was my first video interview ever (the things you do for friends!!) where I share how I got started as a licensing artist, my creative journey, developing your style, and why everyone’s unique voice matters. We had a BLAST chatting!!

What: Pattern Camp is a virtual, online weekend-long pattern design workshop taught by full-time artist and surface pattern designer, Jessica Swift. Participants will leave the workshop with the confidence and skills to create their own beautiful repeat patterns using both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

How it works: Pattern Camp is designed as a 2-day intensive online workshop. The course will take place in a private classroom area on the pattern bootcamp website. Throughout the 2 days, lessons will be released at specific times, leading course participants to work on the same lessons at the same time. You'll share your work in private Facebook and Flickr groups, meet up in live Spreecast check-ins to get questions answered, and Jessica will be on hand and available for email support for the entire weekend as well as in the Facebook group.

You’ll be part of an active community of people learning how to create gorgeous pattern designs all at the same time, sharing your work as you go!

Doesn't that sound like a blast?

If this course is calling to you in any way, I highly recommend you invest in yourself and your passion and sign-up so you can take your pattern designing to the next level. Even if you are not available that weekend, you can still access all of the videos and information at a time that is convenient for you.

Doesn't it sound like fun?!
