About This Class

d8695295

In this Illustrator Basics course we'll be covering how to create shapes with two of my favorite tools in Illustrator: The Pen and Pencil tool. Whether your shapes are complex and controlled, or simple and free-form, the pen and pencil tool have you covered. Used in combination with various supporting tools like the direct selection tool, the anchor point tool, the smooth tool, and others, means no more frustration with trying to achieve the shapes you want. Say goodbye to wonky curves and novice looking illustrations!

My name is Dylan and I’m a strange combination of creative endeavors. From mixing cereals and making sand art as a kid, to graphic design, drawing & painting, videography & editing, sewing, and general craft enthusiasm as an adult, creating and making things beautiful has not only been my constant, but an obsession. Paired with an everlasting love of learning and trying things with my own hands, I’ve become a creative force with a wide range of skills and interests.
