Nordeast Comics Summit #14 — Illustrator Boot Camp

Twin Cities cartoonists! I’ll be running up a half-hour long “Illustrator Boot Camp” for the 14th Nordeast Comics Summit next Thursday at the Big Time Attic studio!

It’s a crash course in what you need to know to use Illustrator to make comics — and not just vector comics, either. I’ll be covering:

    • Intro to Illustrator: A very quick explanation of what vectors are for the complete novice.
    • Vector drawing basics: How to construct complex shapes out of multiple simple shapes.
    • Lettering in Illustrator: Tricks for how to use this basic knowledge to letter your comics.

DATE: Thursday, May 3, 2012
TIME: 6 – 6:30 pm (right before the Cartoonist Conspiracy Jam)
LOCATION: 1618 Central Ave NE, Ste. 216, Nordeast MPLS

Han Solo

Just a quick (vector) sketch of Han Solo to de-stress… It’s almost impossible to overstate how awesome Astute Graphics’ DrawScribe plugin for Adobe Illustrator is. It makes drawing in Illustrator so much more intuitive and gestural than anything in the program’s native toolset. I love it.
