  • OH my! I’m loving this! I’m going to hint and send my husband the link ;) I’ll be on maternity leave from my direct selling business and this will be PERFECT timing to start something using more of my creativity side…thanks so much for sharing!!!

  • Miss you, too, Bonnie! I love love love the repeating designs you sent to me and Courtney was impressed, too! I’d buy it if it was fabric.

  • Loving your class on Creative Live! I have been a surface pattern designer/textile print stylist for 30 years but until I took your class I had no knowledge of AI. I generally work in PS but really love Illustrator now. I’m at a new juncture in my career and am trying to move into licensing my designs so your class has been invaluable to me. Just bought your Design, Print & Build Your Portfolio class and can’t wait to get started on that as well. One question: I work in Adobe CC2017 and notice that some “ways to do things” are different from CS6. Any chance you will be moving to CC in future classes? Thanks again! Amy

    • Thank you, Amy! Yes, I currently work in the latest version of CC, so any current/future classes will be in the latest software. My last two classes on Skillshare (on watercolor and the recolor artwork tool) are both in CC and all of the new tutorials in the Roost Tribe are in CC, as well! :)
