Wicked Illustrator Brush Effect
by Jay Hilgert

This Adobe Illustrator bitt will show you how to make a funky custom brush for a fast and easy grunge-like effect.
1. Open a new new Illustrator document and make a few simple shapes on the artboard. Put a black stroke on the shapes, but no fill.
2. With your shapes selected, open the brushes palette, and apply an organic-looking brush stroke to your shapes.
I used “rough charcoal,” but choose whatever you like.
