Author: Leading illustrators share their tips for perfecting patterns based on geometric shapes.
"Build a file of geometric shapes from drawings you have created by hand. This gives you a collection of ideas to play with when you are working. Lately I have been scanning in a lot of geometric shapes drawn with rulers and other tools, and combining them into a single PSD work file to dive into when I am working. This process feels more natural and integrated with my other illustration work.
"An illustration I recently produced for Wrap Magazine was made with a combination of these shapes alongside curvy line work. The poster for Disko Vraiment is made completely with shapes from the work file without drawing anything beforehand."
