About This Class

Illustrator for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn to make a meandering hexagon pattern that looks a lot simpler to make than it really is! The design can be created in ALL VERSIONS OF ILLUSTRATOR. This is the pattern that we will make - notice how the hexagons are all joined to each other:
