The process will rely on the use of basic shapes (rectangles, rounded rectangles and circles), and some help here and there from the Pathfinder panel. 1. Setting Up Our Document
R for Type Collective Welcome to this interview with Romania-based illustrator Ioana Șopov. Share in her experience as an artist, her impressive body of work, her freelance work for global clients, and her future plans as an illustrator. Ioana has a wonderfully diverse portfolio and history of projects, and it’s my pleasure to share her artwork and words of wisdom with you all today. Hi Ioana! Thanks so much for the interview. Let’s start at the beginning: What got you into illustration? Thank you a lot for having me! Well I’ve always been into drawing like all kids are, and it has been a constant hobby throughout my life, though I was never sure I’d be able to turn it into a viable career choice. I was in my third year of studying Interior Design when I attended a local workshop with designers and illustrators and that sort of put me on this track. I started getting freelance work even before I graduated and that was the thing that sealed the deal, so to speak. Ioana herself. Who or what are your main sources of inspiration? I’ve always liked sequential illustrations, comics and graphic novels. One of my first “heroes” so to speak, Matthew Woodson, is a fantastic illustrator who used to create short sequences of amazingly detailed illustrations that just blew my mind. In the beginning most of my personal work revolved around nature and man, and the relationship between the two. I think that influenced my commissioned work as…

Fancy giving this style of art a go yourself? Check out my classic tattoo style illustration tutorial to learn how to create similar line art designs.

I recently received an email from a reader who asked for advice on how to create ropes and knots in Illustrator, which are particularly common with nautical themed designs . A custom Illustrator brush immediately sprung to mind, so I played around and perfected a technique that can be used to make any path look like a twisted, knotted and entangled length of rope. Follow this step by step tutorial to create a knotted length of rope using brushes in Illustrator. We’ll learn how to build a custom pattern brush, then overcome some problems that prevent the rope from weaving under and over itself. We’ll then take things a step further and use the very same technique to create some cool typographic art. Let’s begin by creating the basic pattern that will form our rope.

Use the Smart Guide indicator to snap the corner of a rectangle to the upper left portion of the first ellipse. Enlarge the rectangle to snap to the lower right path of the second ellipse. Use the Scissors tool to snip the path of the two circles where the rectangle intersects in these two places. Select and …
