Learn to tokidoki at Lynda.com
Fans of tokidoki might be excited to know that the Italian artist behind tokidoki, Simone Legno, has contributed a training course on his Adobe Illustrator methods to the Lynda.com training library. Simone Legno's story is an inspiring one for any character artist - a set of characters he once created on his personal website exploded into an enormously popular brand, with products for girls (and women) bearing images of his characters. You can shop for tokidoki products (some quite pricey, like this Trenino laptop bag, which goes for $298). Teenage girls I know swoon when they come across tokidoki bags, cosmetics, jewelry and clothing. It's a phenomenon.
Check out tokidoki: Creative Inspiration on Lynda.com. Lynda.com offers a fairly comprehensive list of online video courses on Web technology and software. If you're not already a member of Lynda.com, you can sign up for a monthly or yearly plan - it starts at just $25 for one month of unlimited access to their video/audio training training.
