An original print is a simple way to turn a garment into a design piece. With the arrival of advanced techniques such as textile sublimation, the possibilities have multiplied to the point where it is possible to create your own realistic patterns from your computer and take them to the canvas.

In this course you will learn to create textile prints using digital techniques by Ricardo Luévanos, Mexican graphic artist who, through his maximalist designs, has collaborated with retail chains such as C & A, for whom he has created two capsule collections, and for brands independent like Alfredo Martínez and Liberal Youth Ministry.

You will begin by getting to know Ricardo, who will explain to you a trend that is present in all his textile work: maximalism, and how he found it through his interest in the human body, flora and fauna and collages.

You will know his style of illustration, which mixes photography, color pencil and digital retouching, and also, you will discover some of the fashion brands with which he has collaborated in the creation of textile prints.

You will start the elaboration of your print creating a moodboard with stock images. You will choose the photographs that you will use for your print and you will cut them in Photoshop, to then edit them with filters, brushes, colors and deformations. In addition, you will learn to identify the value of each of the design elements that will make up your illustration.

Next, you will create your composition with the worked images to create a pattern, and you will adjust color details. You will experiment with fund options and print your illustration in different sizes, to make sure that the selected one works for the print on the fabric.

Finally, you will learn about the technique of sublimation, its characteristics and particularities.

What is this course's project?

You will create an illustration with different backgrounds to generate two prints with different structural lines. One of them you will apply in one tote bag and the other in a scarf.
