Surface Pattern Designer Jules McCullough teaches and demonstrates how to remove a background of your artwork

"Take your art a step further: How to remove a background in Adobe Photoshop, digitizing your art"

9/15/2022 at 12pm - 1:30 Central

Via Zoom

Jules McCullough is the founder of Julie M Studios, an illustration, and design brand. Her artwork typically incorporates vibrant, playful colors, and her designs have a modern twist. You can find my work in online stores, as well as on my Society6, Redbubble, and Spoonflower.

In this Lunch and Learn, you will learn to remove a background from your artwork. This will allow you to digitize your art and make it easy to use for other purposes, such as Print On Demand products, patterns, create various colorways, and so much more. Jules will show you how to quickly remove the background, clean up any imperfections and get your art ready for other projects. Some familiarity with Photoshop will aid you in working through this Lunch and Learn but is not required. 

This class is for you if you have ever expressed an interest in creating print-on-demand products, using your artwork to create a pattern or want to change the colors of your artwork.
