Workshop Overview

Cohen will guide students through the process of turning a basic pencil sketch into a finished vector graphic in Adobe Illustrator.

For the purpose of working as a team, Cohen will provide an original sketch for everyone to use as the base of their vector graphic. This will allow studens to discuss/bounce ideas off each other while working through the steps together.

No freehand drawing abilities are required!

The course will focus on:

  • Guiding students through Cohen's process from start to finish
  • Approaching line work to creating finished line work
  • Using the Pen Tool and how to work quickly and efficiently with lines
  • Using the Pathfinder Tool to merge and split shapes
  • Working with layers and making the most out of your workspace
  • Tips, tricks and shortcuts
  • Q&A working as a freelance designer & illustrator
