Vector drawings have many advantages over pixel-based images, such as those created with raster-based programs such as Photoshop.

Vector drawings are easily resized and edited for print or web use with no loss in quality. Nothing is lost or compromised.

Art101 created this vector art and page layout for a direct mail newsletter campaign.

1957 Thunderbird ©2018 Andy Markley - design and digital imaging

This was the very first "real" drawing I made on a computer with FreeHand... an experiment in the novel idea of drawing with a mouse.

At the time, it felt rather like drawing with a bar of soap but it's second nature now.

Some day, the Universe will buy me a 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertable. With a red interior.

Art101 was commissioned to design a 90-page report about the California energy crisis by the California Attorney General's office. All vector art was created in FreeHand and exported as either EPS or TIFF files. Photos were provided by the client or purchased from a stock photo service.

It seemed appropriate that a report about an energy crisis required a black cover – a visual representation of a blackout. I bought a stock photo of a lightbulb photographed with an X-ray and inserted a map of California into the bulb's filament. Borrowing a technique for drawing neon tubes from a feature article by John McWade in Before & After magazine made the map glow.

I tried out a few dozen fonts to find the right voice for this book cover commission. FreeHand's interface makes this design process very fast and intuitive. Once I found the right font (Birch, in this case), I used FreeHand's "Convert to Paths" type function to stretch the individual letterforms and curve their baselines into an arc.
