Create your own special milestone map :D I'll show you my full process from brainstorm to final design. It's perfect for any level, since even the simplest drawings will work. During the first week, you can also watch the class completely for free through this link.
Check out the trailer below :) If you're new to Skillshare, scroll down to the end of this post to learn how to sign up for the class.
This is a fun creative exercise that anyone can do. It's a sweet way to commemorate relationship anniversaries, baby's firsts, and a effective way to share processes or journeys. Also works as a great illoging entry ;)
I share my full process on how I go about creating one:
This is Part One of a two-part series! I'll be using this design to show you my digital painting process in my next class, coming in a few weeks. I wanted the example to be something you'd be excited to learn how to digital color—it's easier to learn that way :)
Just for fun, I created an additional sample map that follows the process of the class. A meta map! Hope it gives a little spark of inspiration :)

And here are links to some bonus content I mention in the class, for those looking for extra resources :) I hope it’s helpful:
I host my tutorials on Skillshare because I like their platform (more details in my post: Why Skillshare?). It is structured for learning in a friendly way. A lot of my favorite illustrators and designers have classes on their too. I think it's worth the subscription fee, but you can also try it for free for two months—plenty of time to watch the 25 minute class :)
I also have to share that our last class on Illustrated Journaling took off got a Staff Pick! It's a special curated selection by the Skillshare staff. And the student feedback is so rewarding:
Thanks for reading, and happy learning!
