My name is Carrie Cantwell, and I’m an illustrator, surface designer and educator.
If I asked you to draw something, what would you do? Would you pull up Instagram or Pinterest to see how other artists draw things? It’s OK if you answered yes to that question. As artists, it’s natural to be inspired by the art around us. But if you want to stand out, and you want your art to be recognizable even without your name on it, you need to develop a signature style. I’m going to help you get closer to doing that in this class.
By defining who you are, what you care about, and what you enjoy, you can unlock the signature style that already exists within you. It’s what shines through in all your work and differentiates you from other artists.
I’ll define the 3 key elements that make up a signature style, and I’ll show you how to start identifying which motifs, mediums and moods resonate with you. I’ll also show you how to create art that looks consistent and cohesive from one piece to another, and how to connect with different art styles.
This class is for any visual creative – whether you’re an illustrator, fine artist, pattern designer, etc. who’s interested in discovering and developing their signature style. This is a beginner-friendly class, and you don’t need any prior knowledge or experience to take this class.
I’m giving you 2 super helpful workbooks that will teach you how to identify and switch up key elements that make up a signature style and how to achieve consistency in your art. My workbooks also have a ton of great ideas to get you inspired and excited about making art, and they’ll help you discover your true inner artist.
By the end of this class, you’ll have a fresh perspective on a style that resonates with you, and you’ll have a guide for identifying and defining what makes your art uniquely you. So, are you ready to jump in? Let’s do this!
