If you're interested even the slightest bit from looking at the preview, I recommend downloading the set -- there are a lot of nice ones (at least I think so) that aren't shown.

As usual, feel free to use them for personal and commercial use.

Illustrator 101: To Scale or Not to Scale? Strokes, That Is.

As you might be able to tell by the title, this isn’t an advanced feature, but because of the wildly popular “Illustrator Quick Tips” I’ve been publishing, I’m starting a new series of simple, yet very useful tips aptly named “Illustrator 101.” (I will also be doing this for Photoshop, so keep an eye out for “Photoshop 101″ tips coming soon as well)

Sometimes the simplest things can be the most helpful, so to kick of the Illustrator 101 series, we’re going to save ourselves some transforming headaches, and harness a simple scaling option in the Transform palette.

Case Study – Bleach by Sharon Milne aka ChewedKandi

Hey, my name is Sharon Milne and I go by the moniker ChewedKandi.

I have a passion for vector art and have been creating digital art portraits and illustrations for the past decade.

I’m self taught in the programs I use and especially love teaching others the benefits and wonders of Adobe Illustrator.

All the vector work I produce is 100% vector with no raster effects.
