Video Tutorial: Create a Seamless Pattern in Illustrator

In today’s video tutorial we’re going to play around in Adobe Illustrator to create a seamlessly repeating pattern. Since it’s almost Halloween, we’ll make a pattern out of spooky illustrations, then add a couple of cool finishing touches to give the artwork a retro style print effect with subtle ink bleeds and misregistration.

  1. I love your tutorial pace. This was super helpful—I had no idea about the object>path>make shortcut. That’ll definitely save me time in the future.

    • Thanks Jenn, I’m happy to hear you like the faster pace. When I’m watching tutorials I often find myself wanting to skip ahead, so I try to be concise in my videos. It doesn’t tend to help the beginners out though
