Typography and lettering are distinct yet intimately interwoven art forms. While typography relies on established fonts, lettering relies on the hand of an artist. However, since hand lettering, like typography, is usually destined for print or the web, it's critical for illustrators to be able to transform their letterform drawings into pristine vector graphics. In this installment of Drawing Vector Graphics, Von Glitschka takes members through the entire creative process of hand lettering: starting with analog drawing tools, then using Adobe Illustrator to turn his drawings into vector graphics that can be further customized and scaled up or down. Von also introduces styling tips to create more compelling graphics and examples from some of the industry's best artists.
A sketch is a great starting place, but color and detail are what take your illustrations to the next level. Von Glitschka returns in this follow-up to his popular Drawing Vector Graphics course to show how to add dimension, texture, and color to your designs with Adobe Illustrator. Along the way, Von reveals his insights on the creative process, and shares the work of seven inspiring illustrators.
