Brushes are a great way to enhance your Adobe Illustrator creative work.

You can go a long way with Illustrator's basic tools, draw wit the pen or curvature tool. Use the width tool to change the profile of your stroke and so on.  But with the right set of brushes – and the flexible way in which Illustrator allows them to be used on vector shapes – you can quickly and easily add texture and character to any piece of work. Brushes are also part of your Appearance and as such you can save Graphics Style using brushes.


In this Adobe spark Presentation I go over how to use Adobe Illustrator brushes as well as drawing with the Blob brush tool

 

 

 

Enjoy!

As a fine artist and a designer visuals are very important to me. Using Adobe Spark enables me to create visual

stories on any device without any knowledge of animation, transitions or HTML.

I use Adobe Page in my classroom to deliver a tutorials. At my design studio to tell a story or create an

immediate portfolio. I am able to create and deliver engaging presentations and share creative ideas across

different devices and social media simply with a link.

 

In the following link I am sharing an extraordinary story about Charlotte Salomon. An artist that was born in

Berlin in 1917 and died in Auschwitz in 1943. Her story is unique. She did not survive the war but her art did.

“Life or Theatre” is a unique achievement of art and literature. No one who enters into Charlotte Salomon’s

world will ever forget it. The survival of Charlotte’s art transcends her own death in the gas chamber.

 

Here is Charlotte Salomon story:
