Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Michael Grills. I am a freelance illustrator at Michael Grills Illustration. Some of my latest projects include storyboard work for Honda and SiriusXM. In this course, we are going to learn how to use Illustrator and InDesign for fast, clear, effective storyboards. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to set up Illustrator for sketching and final artwork, importing that artwork into InDesign for client presentation, using a tiny bit of JavaScript to help with some of the more mundane tasks, dealing with client change requests. By the end of the training, you will be able to use Illustrator and InDesign as part of your workflow, and some of the tricks I show you will also work with your other complicated Illustration assignments. I am excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
