Adobe Illustrator Los Angeles-AstuteGraphicsTour-9Oct12

In part of my ongoing quest to visit ALL of the Los Angeles area Adobe User Groups, I had the opportunity to attend the Adobe Illustrator User Group of LA (AILA) on October 9th (Facebook event URL) They have partnered with ING Direct Cafe to hold meetings at their location. ING cafe has nice digs and they are nice people. They regularly let folks use their cafe for community meetings.AILA Mgr Chana Messer met me at the door; and, there were some regular AILA & Adobe User Group members I have seen at other LA events: AILA-CoMgr Andrew Kutchera,  Sebastian Bleak, Andew Kanavagh, Cynthia Gordon (OCCMA.org), Beverly Houwing, Sharon Sachse, and several other Adobe User Group Mgrs came out to this event.  Astute Graphics was on its final leg of its USA Tour, so once again Nicholas der Walle was presenting the new tool plugin tools Vector Scribe for Adobe Illustrator CS6. We had about 45 folks on hand to observe and take part of the presentation.Here are some photos from the event.

 AILA is one of many Adobe User Groups in the Los Angeles area; and, they often coordinate with the other Adobe User Groups to hold joint events (ie the CSNext LA event).  My next stop in LA will be for LA PhoneGap and Digital Designers of LA’s  LA mobile event on Oct 18th, 2012.
