Andrew Fairclough – Skillshare


We received exciting news from Melbourne over night that Andrew Fairclough (AKA Kindred Studio) has launched his first Skillshare class.

It’s called TRUE GRIT: Handmade Textures & Halftones for Illustrators & Designers. As the name implies it’s heavily focussed on creating textures and halftones using a range of analogue and digital techniques. As Andrew explains “participants will create a poster and learn the dark art of distressing,  before adding a selection of your custom textures and halftones to create that sweet gritty magic that will give your work a hand crafted vibe unique to you.”

To celebrate the launch we at Handsome Frank have three free passes to giveaway to our followers. All you need to do is email us at with the subject name “Free Skillshare” and tell us in one sentence why you’ve got true grit….

You can learn more about the course and watch a film about it here.
