About This Class

Adobe Illustrator is an incredible design application, one that has limitless potential for translating your creativity into beautiful graphic formats. The sheer amount of tools and effects can be daunting, however, leaving beginners intimidated and confused without a starting point. This series will not only provide a foundation for working with Illustrator, it will get you started on the path to harnessing the application's power and creating amazing things!

This class, which is the second of a four part series on the Fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator, will provide in-depth insrtuction and understanding into the tools in Illustrator.

Be sure to enroll in my complete Fundamentals of Illustrator Series: Fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator I: The First Steps to Becoming a Pro Illustrator, Fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator III: Working with Color, Fills & Strokes, and Fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator IV: Appearance, Layers, Images & Symbols.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!! The BEST lesson.... and Instructor I've witness so far (Pete Collins close second because of knowledge and skill level). I have never absorbed so much information so FAAASST (I watch all lessons in x2 (double speed). I've only been registered a couple of days but I've completed 15-20 classes (with notes and rewinding for tricky parts)... You're so concise, prudent, knowledgeable, and seemingly organized, yet so free! Brother, I'm amazed, and I have found my illustrator instructor. On to part 3!!!!!!! Thank.... YOU!!!
Brad does a great job covering the tools you'd use, how to use them, and why to use them.
Good fundamental overview.

Brad Woodard

Designer + Illustrator

I am a graphic designer and illustrator raised in the Great Northwest, now living in Austin, Texas with my wife and two little kids. After graduating with a BFA in graphic design, I started my career as an information designer and illustrator at Column Five Media. The digital illustration courses I took in college paid off, as I found that more and more clients were requesting illustration work in their designs. Merging both skills together I have been able attract all types of work, including my work in advertising at Arnold Worldwide.

Now, my wife and I run our own design and illustration studio full-time, named Brave the Woods. We also started the company Artists for Education, which brings artists together to create beautifully designed, educational artwork for teachers' classrooms and your living room.
