Illustrating Vision: Creating Vectorized Graphics for Screen Printing

Description

The purpose of this class is to provide you with a framework for delivering meaningful illustrations to your clients that effectively communicate their vision. We’ll be working through one of my most common jobs, creating a hand-drawn vectorized graphic. Often these graphics are used to create a logo or t-shirt design. I’ll show you my process from when I first meet with a client to hear their vision all the way through to presenting them with a finished vectorized graphic. You’ll see my entire workflow: 

– Sketching drafts and finding the “aha” moment.

– Inking your illustration.

– Importing into Procreate.

– Digitally inking and vectorizing your illustration.

– Draft presentation, mockups in Photoshop, and revisions.

– Finalizing your graphic.

– Sharing how your work expresses the vision.

 From the vision example presented in the class you’ll be creating your own unique hand-drawn vectorized graphic. * A basic understanding of Procreate and Adobe Illustrator is required.
