About This Class

There are many different ways to add texture to vector artwork. Many involve purchasing brushes, using texture overlays or rasterizing your work. Find out how to add texture to your work that can be done all inside of Adobe Illustrator and be scaled to any size you like—just like the rest of your vector art!

Fantastic class! Well paced and well explained. A quick guide right to the point, but also a good showcase on how to actually use the techniques learned, with some actual work.

After four years designing for agencies throughout Canada and the UK, Hayden has switched his focus to what got him into design in the first place—illustration.

Now, living in Toronto, Hayden teaches online classes to 1000’s of students, works as a freelance illustrator and puts an absurd amount of time into putting happy faces on inanimate objects. And when he isn’t creating art, you can find him practicing parkour, playing board games and burning through many a fantasy novel.

Hayden has been featured on Skillshare, Redbubble, 365 Awesome Designers, Stepping Stones, Student Voices and by the Association of Registered Graphic Designers.
