Fun tutorial! Loved seeing the process and amount of detail that goes into illustrations like these. Also learned a lot of new Illustrator tricks to apply to my next project. Thanks Hayden!
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.
