I’ve featured the style of single-weight line art illustrations on Spoon Graphics a few times over the years. The first showcase was back in 2015, followed by a couple of tutorials showing how to create line art illustrations yourself using Adobe Illustrator. My latest tutorial on the topic a couple of weeks ago prompted me to check out how the trend has developed, so I’ve been busy putting together a fresh showcase of vector line art illustrations from a range of talented artists. See how detailed illustrations, patterns and shapes can be created using only stroked paths.
