Unless you work in the field of graphic design, the term “vector illustration” might sound foreign to you.
This increasingly popular form of digital art will be explained and shown by Surrey artist Veronica Davies on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Thursday Artist Talk speaker series at the Surrey Art Gallery.
Davies will speak about digital illustration, showing examples of her work and the varied applications, as well as demonstrate her process in Adobe Illustrator to create those smooth lines and geometric shapes that characterize vector graphics.
“Vector illustration is very versatile,” she says, “allowing scaling to any size without compromising quality.”
Admission to the talk is free.
Davies has been a graphic designer for more than ten years and currently freelances from her office in South Surrey. Her vector-based illustrations are fun and bright, and she enjoys bringing her client’s ideas to life. She has created illustrations for logos, custom character designs, animations, and iPad applications. To view her work, visit veronicadavies.ca
There will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. The event concludes by 9 p.m. Refreshments are provided. This event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with the Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.
