Just in time for the New Year, we’ve a special treat for illustration fans: a new Illustrator CC sample art piece, created by Don Clark of Invisible Creature.

From an early love of skateboarding and snowboarding to founding a punk rock band with his brother Ryan in the 1990s, Don Clark has moved through life embracing his passions. Eventually, Don turned his attention to design.
In 2000, Don and his brother again joined forces: this time bringing their creative vision and illustrators’ touch to developing album covers, posters, and logos for many of the musicians they’d met throughout their music careers.

13 years later, Don still does some work on music packaging—even having garnered Grammy nominations along the way— but that’s now just part of the focus of Invisible Creature, the highly successful creative firm Don runs with Ryan.

Hello fellow vector fanatics, my name is Sharon Milne and I sometimes go under the moniker ChewedKandi. I’ve been interested in digital art for over a decade now but it wasn’t until five years ago that I got into vector art. Since then it’s been an addictive and scalable journey with Adobe® Illustrator®.
It’s an absolute pleasure to be able to share with you my process of putting together this Zodiac/Leo the Lion themed vector portrait which I created using Adobe Illustrator CS5.
This tutorial is full of helpful hints on using a variety of tools in Illustrator CS5 as well as some of the thought processes behind elements of the portrait. If you’ve any questions, please leave them in the comments and I’ll be sure to help any way I can. So let’s get on with it, shall we?
