Join us for a very special meeting to celebrate Adobe Illustrator and the holiday season with a special guest speaker: Chevon Hicks.
On the Agenda:
6:30 -7:00: Networking.
7:00 - 7:15: What is new in Adobe Illustrator 2017
7:15: - 8:15: Chevon Hicks: Generative Art with Adobe Illustrator Learn how to create generative art in Adobe Illustrator. Explore the possibilities of seeing what happens when familiar tools are applied in unfamiliar ways. Chevon will lead us through a brief overview of working with scripting and where to find the best scripts online. We’ll create simple brushes and patterns, deconstruct them, then recreate brushes from what remains, before letting illustrator’s algorithms take over to create artwork on its own. Mind. Blown.
About the Speaker:
"Chevon founded the digital & social agency Heavenspot and sold it in 2015 to global agency network M&C Saatchi. It was actually the second time he sold the agency during the 20 years he presided over the company. He exited about a year later to focus on work that he describes as having more purpose and meaning. His new venture, PatternBreak aims to do just that, through a series of small tweaks that can be applied to both business and life. During the branding process for Hick’s new creative company, he relied heavily on generative artwork to establish the new look & feel. Generative art is typically made by programmers, but Chevon unlocked the generative art potential in Adobe Illustrator opening up new possibilities for designers already familiar with the tool."
