Astute Graphics CEO & Founder, Nick van der Walle, returns as the Rambling Illustrator in a new webinar series running parallel to the official Webinar Wednesdays. Each episode goes live on alternating weeks.
The Rambling Illustrator is a completely unscripted exploration aimed at all users of Adobe Illustrator; those who currently use Astute Graphics plugins and those who have yet to fully discover them.
In this episode, we'll use the same formula that worked in our inaugural Rambling Illustrator. You can see the full recording of previous material, plus bonus additions on the dedicated Youtube playlist.
An existing vector-like brand, design, style or technique will be shared with Nick by an attendee. The artwork will then be recreated using a combination of native and plugin tools. Along the way, Nick's techniques, tips and tricks will be presented. We also encourage attendees to share their approaches which can then be demonstrated and discussed further to widen everyone's skills and technical knowledge of vector artwork creation.
Attendees will be asked to nominate a random vector stock artwork that exists in Adobe Stock. The artwork will then be downloaded and examined with a view to tailoring the design to suit individual needs. Particular attention will be given how to pick design apart, plus deal with less-than-ideal structure and technical building techniques.
