Welcome to the first edition of my Illustration Blog. This page will follow the progress of my thesis project for Miami International University of Art & Design. Digital Illustration is my real passion and I have taught courses in Adobe Illustrator for several years so I am writing an instructional classroom book for traditional Illustrators who want to learn to express themselves digitally. I am tentatively calling it Adobe Illustrator for Illustrators and I am releasing it online in serial form.
To the left you will see Chapter 1 coverpage. Clicking it will open an interactive flipbook of the chapter with embedded video tutorials or you can download the .PDF below if you prefer. In the near future, I will be adding downloadable source files.
In this first installment, you'll learn to use the brushes and the basic proportions and features of the face in Adobe Illustrator.
