Issue with Illustrator 17.0.1 Update for Mac

The Illustrator CC 17.0.1 bug fix update, released yesterday, November 18, has caused a crash when Illustrator is launched on Mac for a small number of customers. The cause of this crash is related to having old or corrupt fonts installed that have either the font name or or the font family type missing.

The Illustrator development team has identified the fix and are in the process of releasing a new update for Mac customers. Until the new update is available, the the Mac 17.0.1 update has been removed from  Creative Cloud. The new update is planned for later this week. For more information, please see this Help document.

Ai Kawabata’s “Scarlet Peony and Courtesan (Oiran)”

With each release of Illustrator, we commission artists to create work to help showcase  the new features in the release. For Illustrator CC, we were excited to work with Ai Kawabata, a talented designer from Japan, a country famous for its distinctive, sophisticated design aesthetic.

"Scarlet Peony & Courtesan (Oiran)" by Ai Kawabata

“Scarlet Peony & Courtesan (Oiran)” by Ai Kawabata

“Red is the color of passion, and it’s one of my favorite colors. People are naturally drawn to red. It can be shocking, and it infuses an image with excitement and brightness.”
—AI KAWABATA

Ai Kawabata has loved drawing since she was a child. Ai Kawabata headshotLooking up at the play of colors in the late evening sky, Ai would wonder how she could express the depth and richness of what she saw. She layered colors on her drawing pad in an attempt to recreate the experience on paper. Her grandfather provided her with inspiration too, telling her that if she was passionate about drawing, she should use her gift and become a designer. Ai took his advice to heart, and now works as a designer and illustrator in Tokyo.

You can find our more about how Ai created this image by viewing the “How To” PDF. And you can also download the Illustrator file to further understand how AI built her final image. (note: this is a large file and will take some time to download).

We hope you enjoy Ai’s work as much as we do!
