What I loved most about the Immersion Course was the excitement from Bonnie and all the other designers that shared their stories throughout the program. You all made me believe I could really do this. And after nine months, I am close to finishing my first pattern design portfolio. This is so darn exciting!
I had just lost both my parents within a few months of each other and I was offered a buy-out in my previous corporate position. I have always been an artist, with a huge dream of wanting to learn Adobe Illustrator, and ultimately sell my work.
What concerned me was, can I do this? I knew I wanted to learn and convinced myself that this was an investment in me. I took the plunge, so to speak, and couldn’t have been happier.
The skill I cherish is two-fold, refining my creative skills by drawing and painting almost daily. The second is learning Adobe Illustrator. I am still learning it and have made huge strides. (So glad that this is a lifetime subscription, as I keep going back over lessons and keep learning new things!)
I also loved the Q&A sessions. They help alleviate questions and anxiety while using this complex program. One more thing: while in the program, I have to say the “experts” help was spot on! I felt so supported that my questions were not only answered, but answered quickly and with great encouragement.

Lastly, I am looking forward to the first yes. I know it’s coming. I am so excited to see my designs on products that someone spends their hard-earned money on because they liked the look.
