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 create a faux tissue paper collage using a reference image in Illustrator. You will learn to add a reference image to a file, how to make the shapes and fill them with color sourced from the reference image. You will make a texture brush and use that to texture the image and then finish it off with a background. 

This is what we will be making:
