Upcoming Event: Illustrator Live with Laura Coyle

Our next Illustrator Live is scheduled for this June 29th at 11am Eastern. In this session will be about using Symbols in Illustrator! Topics include:

Dynamic symbols and editing symbols
The symbolism tools like the sprayer & scruncher
When to use them, how they can save you time
and more!

Plus, symbols integrate with some of Astute Graphics’ plugins, so I’ll talk about that too.

The zoom link is posted here.



Upcoming Event: LIVE One Hour Challenge

Chelsea’s next Live One Hour Challenge is this Wednesday, June 30th at 1pm Eastern!

It’s that time of year!!! Our Summer of Creativity is right around the corner and we are busily working to make this our best event yet!

More information will be released soon, but you can go ahead and grab your spot here.


Recording Posted: Photoshop training with Sherry London

In Sherry’s recent Photoshop training she shared techniques for using the Warp and Puppet Wrap Tools. It was a very insightful presentation and the techniques are handy for creating the abstract patterns we are all seeing on WGSN and the runway.

Have a topic that you would like discussed in an upcoming presentation? Please tag @prancingpixel on the Tech Talk forum to let her know.
