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!

Great, quick class on learning grain texture in Illustrator. Some parts can be a little confusing but almost all of the questions you might have already have an answer in the community section. Very helpful!
This is a great class! It's so informative and very clear! I love the results and all the applications it can have. It's also short and fun.

Illustrator & Designer


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.
