About This Class

Adobe Illustrator is a wonderful software that will certainly help you materialize your ideas. However, it can be very intimidating if you are new to it, or you might just not be using it to its full potential. In this 90-minute class, you'll learn the basics of using Illustrator through detailed video tutorials.

This class is the first one of the Reign Repeats series, and it is meant to help you learn the fundamental Illustrator skills you'll need later in the series to be able to use the software to create beautiful and seamless repeat patterns. It is perfect for those who have never ever even opened Illustrator, new designers, illustrators and everyone interested in Surface Pattern Design.

By the end of the class, you will have lost the fear of that grey workspace, and you will have acquired the skills to replicate a basic illustration, trace over some of my motifs, modify them to make them yours and finally, create a faux-pattern with them.
