About This Class


Want to liven up your flat vector images with a little yummy texture?  Then this class is for you!  Whether you are a fan of the grunge look or want to give your artwork more of a hand-painted vibe, this class will teach you how to apply clipping and/or transparency masks to do just that. 

You will need to have some existing knowledge of the basics of Adobe Illustrator before taking this course, but not that much.  This class assumes that you already know how to create shapes in Illustrator and group them together.  That's really all you need to know ahead of time, though.  Can't wait to see what you create!
