For years Ive drawn inspiration from the artwork of ancient cultures.

Back in 2002, whilst at university studying graphic design, I discovered some beautiful examples of ancient Greek pattern work, and from that point I was hooked. I had never spent much time trying to draw anything with such intricacy before, and at that time I certainly didnt know Adobe Illustrator very well.

In the years proceeding, I learnt to draw the patterns accurately and built up my confidence until I was able to express myself with the skills I had developed. Which leads me nicely to this tutorial. Ive sketched out some elements for you to redraw in Illustrator, and these elements will be used to embellish the typographic element I have supplied on the disc and set the composition of the piece. Well then move into Photoshop where well add texture, colour and adjustment layers to give it that extra zing. Lets go!
