Photoshop & Illustrator Tutorial: Texture Effects for Vector Graphics

As someone naturally disposed towards consuming pointless information, Charles Williams spends a lot of time on Twitter – more than he probably should, he says. So he put his illustration skills to use in creating a portrait of the habit.

This tutorial reflects an aesthetic that Charles has been exploring, one that brings psychogeography to portraits by taking an artistic depiction of the ‘soul’ of a place and applying it to those who live there. Here he infuses the virtual geography of Twitter into a portrait based on a photo of (supposedly) a regular tweeter. The effects Charles uses might be thought of as capturing the style and content of the person’s tweets.
