About This Class

18c9bca7

Vectornator is a simple but powerful vector app for the iPad which is easy and intuitive to learn. Amazingly, it's also free.

This class will take you step by step through my methods for creating vector illustrations and repeat patterns in Vectornator. I start with the basics, so even if you have never tried a vector program before, you will be able to follow along.

We will be creating a cactus and succulent houseplant pattern, and in the process we will use all sorts of features including:

  • Shapes
  • Live corner radius
  • Boolean operations
  • Bézier curves and nodes
  • Pen tool
  • Pencil and Brush freehand tools
  • Masks
  • Groups
  • Gradients
  • Artboards
  • And lots more!

As always, I will be sharing plenty of tips and tricks as we go.

So come on, let's get started!
