Come have a drink or two while you enjoy a brief presentation on Digital Art and bring your iPad along to learn how to make product illustrations using Adobe Fresco.

It’s not uncommon to see curated illustrations in a digital experience these days. Illustrations or drawings can be manipulated to describe any modern abstract idea that photography sometimes can't portray. Art can enhance our services or tools by embedding our brands personality into them. With today’s tools, it’s never been easier!

Bring your iPad to draw along or simply follow through to learn about how you could use Adobe Fresco to make digital art. I'll share my process & tips as I demo making an illustration through the style I've developed myself over the past few years of experimenting with creative software.

Make sure to install Adobe Fresco, I understand Procreate is also another awesome drawing app but for the purpose of this demo, I’ll be working with Adobe Fresco which is included in everyone’s Adobe subscription (there’s also a free trial to experiment with). I’ll go over the pros and cons of using Fresco as well! Also I’m not affiliated with Adobe, so this is NOT a sponsored gig. It simply works for my process so that’s what I’ll be using.
