How To Create a Fun Vector Illustration

In today’s Adobe Illustrator video tutorial I’ll take you through the process of creating vector artwork with just a handful of basic tools, simple shapes and flat colours to build up a fun composition. Abstract vector illustrations like this can be applied to anything, it could be printed on the back of a business card, applied as a skateboard deck or even made into a vehicle wrap! That’s the power of vector graphics, their infinite scalability and crisp lines makes them really versatile and ideal for printing.

  1. Wow, each and every of your tutorial always amazes me. What a big contrast to the last tutorial article! I’ve just learnt about making a photorealistic metal badge in Photoshop, now it’s an elegant and detailed vector pattern like artwork with a flat design. How fruitful!

  2. Very helpful understanding of some of the basics from Illustrator, some good pointers from which will definitely help speed up my process. Thanks! :)

  3. Ok, this is driving me crazy but each time I am trying to draw the second open shape using the pen tool (with 3 points), once I apply the brush it closes the path with a black triangle. Do you have any idea why?

    I’d love to keep doing the tutorial but I am stuck there. :(
