What the 600+ people who have taken it are saying
"Such a great class! I've been trying to learn Ai for years but I think I've finally grasped it because of this project. Easy to understand and the instructor is very thorough. Excited to post my work! 10/10 would recommend."
"Fun tutorial! Loved seeing the process and amount of detail that goes into illustrations like these. Also learned a lot of new Illustrator tricks to apply to my next project. Thanks Hayden!"
"What a great class! As a lover of all things fantasy but a less than stellar illustrator, I've always wanted to make my medieval ideas come to life. And Hayden's class has taught me just that! Hayden's step-by-step process makes for a very smooth learning curve throughout the duration of the class."
Why learn on Happy Faces on Everything?
Every course has been created with the intention of helping designers improve their illustration skills. If that's you and what you're looking for, you can't get more specific than that.
I don't believe you need hours upon hours of video to learn a technique. In fact, I've gone to great lengths to make these courses succinct and to the point—this way you spend less time watching and more time making.
The best way to learn is by doing. Because of this, every course includes a class project designed to have you truly internalize what you're learning.
I know that not everyone can take an in-person art course. So in order to bring that useful knowledge to you, I continue to be a student myself. Armed with this education, I distill only the necessary information into what you'll find on this site.
There is a community of 400+to look to when you're stuck. So while you may be watching the course on your own, you certainly have classmates to turn to.
