Photoshop vs. Illustrator Workshop

Photoshop vs. Illustrator Workshop

There’s an exciting event coming up that I’m thrilled to be a part of. Naomi Atkinson, owner and operator of Whosit & Whatsit over in Newcastle Upon Tyne in the UK, has asked to host the very first live Signalnoise workshop… titled ‘Photoshop vs. Illustrator’. All of my work has equal parts vector and raster incorporated into the final product, and I’ll be explaining my full process in this 1-day mighty workshop.

Without further ado, lets get straight to the details for this rad event:


When and Where

Saturday 6th June 2015 // 10am-5pm BST
First floor // Whosit & Whatsit, 46 Sandhill, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3LT

What Will Be Covered

James White from the Signalnoise Studio will take the class on a journey through his creative process. Beginning with sketchbook thumbnails, to a refined drawing, we will discuss the ins and outs of conceptualising a design for our pop-culture art piece. From there we move into the world of vector, exploring how bezier points and refined curves help us realize our concept illustration in Adobe Illustrator. And finally moving into Photoshop to explore paint techniques, layer-masking, effects and texture.

At the end of this workshop, you will have a finished piece of pop culture art using new (and old) tools in new (and possibly exciting) ways… we’ll use fewer brackets though. Sorry.


The cost for attending (both physical and virtual) is listed in the image above, and you can do more details and preview on the Whosit & Whatsit site. There are only a couple of early bird tickets left, so act quick!

This is very new territory for me, and something I’m VERY much looking forward to. Hope to see you there!
