The Astute Graphics plugins can help you be more precise, efficient, and creative with Adobe Illustrator. In this course, learn how these plugins can revolutionize the way you draw and edit artwork in Illustrator.

Mike covers drawing and editing with VectorScribe and InkScribe, aligning and arranging objects with ColliderScribe, creating beautiful symmetry with MirrorMe, and adjusting color and applying effects with Phantasm. He also goes over tools in DynamicSketch and WidthScribe that make drawing with a tablet even more natural and intuitive.
