Are your CAD designs looking a little flat? Would you like to add visual richness and depth? Join us on Thursday for a series of tutorials exploring the use of texture in Illustrator.
Jill Turney will present a tutorial on editting handmade texture in Photoshop, and then adding it to Illustrator via use of the Transparency feature. She will also share various online sources for textures.
If you've ever been trying to add texture to a design in Illustrator, and ended by having an unfortunate encounter with the dreaded Spinning Wheel of Death, Pamela Farmer is presenting a two part tutorial that may be the help you need. In the first part, Pamela will focus on processing hand-drawn motifs in Photoshop, which will then be traced in Illustrator. In the next part, she'll move on to creating TIFF textures in Photoshop which can be used in Illustrator without weighing down your Illustrator files.
And if you can't join us in Berkeley, do not despair. The proceedings will be recorded, and shared later in the guild's private Facebook page.
