Convert your Drawing, Logo, or Hand Lettering into digital art/vector graphic in Adobe Illustrator!
Have you ever wanted to create your own logo or wanted to convert a drawing into Vector Art? Or maybe you have hand lettering work you'd love to digitize for personal projects or for social media branding? I'll show you the fastest and easiest way to convert hand drawn illustrations and sketches into vector art so that you can use for logos, products, marketing, etc. We'll talk about the basics of using adobe illustrator, along with my tips & shortcuts, and the process of converting your drawing and saving it into a file format that's ready to use. We'll go over basics of setting up a file and also saving your work for web or print. The goal is to have a finished digital version of your logo or sketch. Come join and bring a project you want to work on! I will be hosting this at Kawika's Beach Deli in Ocean Beach, there is enough space only for 6 students. There are tons of parking in the area, also free wifi, arrive a little bit earlier to enjoy some sandwiches and coffee. I may have more of these workshops during the week - if you have any scheduling and time preferences, please feel free to shoot me an email! - You'll need to bring your own laptop if you want to work on your sketch during class, but not required, you can follow along on my laptop and take notes. If you don't have a copy of Adobe Illustrator CC you can download a free trial for 7days. I suggest that you bring a mouse or a small wacom tablet if you have one, it will be handy for drawing with the pen tool in illustrator. - You'll also need to create a free adobe account so that you can have access to adobe creative cloud if you don't already have one. - You'll also need to download the Moleskine Adobe cc app onto your smart phone or ipad. (I'll show you why in class) Its free. - MOST IMPORTANTLY: You'll need to bring your sketch of your logo idea or drawing, preferably an inked version ( I would suggest either photocopying the original so that if you mess up, you still have a copy) Any questions, please shoot a message here.
