About This Class
The Pen Tool is one of the most powerful components to any vector editing software—and Adobe Illustrator is no exception. Sometimes however, its use can be quite time-consuming. That's where this class comes in.
There are countless ways to create shapes and paths in Adobe Illustrator that have nothing to do with the pen tool. Oftentimes the solutions are quicker, easier and look better than if you actually did it by hand.
Enroll today and learn how the majority of my illustrations, despite containing shapes ranging from the geometric to organic, are built with little to no use of the pen tool!
After four years designing for agencies throughout Canada and the UK, Hayden has switched his focus to what got him into design in the first place—illustration.
Now, living in Toronto, Hayden teaches online classes to 1000’s of students, works as a freelance illustrator and puts an absurd amount of time into putting happy faces on inanimate objects. And when he isn’t creating art, you can find him practicing parkour, playing board games and burning through many a fantasy novel.
Hayden has been featured on Skillshare, Redbubble, 365 Awesome Designers, Stepping Stones, Student Voices and by the Association of Registered Graphic Designers.
