where can i learn this style

assuming it's a minimalist vector illustration,
between svs and schoolism, i've been looking around for training on how to simplify a photo reference to look like the first graphic below.
any suggestions for a direction?
Thanks in advance,
@Dwayne-Neckles I don’t think there’s any specific school that specializes in this graphic style of illustration. With solid drawing skills and knowledge in photoshop/illustrator, I think you can pull it off. SVS can help you with that. schoolism can too. However, they can only teach you the basic skills. It’s up to you to discover your own approach to this style. For clearer instruction, you can also approach any existing illustrators with this style and inquire if they can mentor you. That might be a faster route. I hope this helps
If you haven't already, I'd definitely start looking into learning Illustrator if you want to go down the vector route, there are plenty of tutorials on Youtube and it's pretty easy once you get used to it. But like @nyrrylcadiz says, you need to work on your drawing skills and style first and then you can experiment with the look you want when you come to creating it digitally!

@nyrrylcadiz this is super helpful thank you. @hannahmccaffery i know illustrator pretty good its the drawing skills i have to work on. thx... im a little aspergers so i didnt see the connection at first but i now see that if i can draw then i can apply it to any other style i want.
The other reason why i wanted to "jump" into learning this still is because i can animate in after effects, and the clean vector look works well for animations... again thanks..
