Getting an identity of your own is very important, especially in the world of painting and illustration. Having a defined personal style that speaks of oneself as an artist, although later used for other clients, is essential. Camipepe, or what is the same, Camila Olivares (Cami) and José Flores (Pepe), are designers who began self-taught in the illustration and, naturally, found their form of expression in a style that is fresh, colored Vivid and simple shapes, with a childish touch.

In this course, Camipepe will teach you how to capture your illustrated universe in a composition, and then take it to different stationery stands through a mockup . You will learn to prepare the files for printing and you will receive some tips to market your products and open your own path in the illustration.
