Illustrator CC Image Within Text Tutorial #34/365

Today our tutorial celebrates three fantastic musicians, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper! Watch as we create a portrait of Buddy Holly using text and follow our step by step actions so you can learn to create your own!

This technique offers a great alternative to simply using an image and can work well when used in editorial, poster design and loads more. Being able to use words as images means you can introduce information in a new way e.g the time of a gig, name of an artist or location etc.
