Hi I'm an artist and wanting now to get into T-shirt design
and start selling t-shirts as well as my artwork.
I want to learn vector design using Illustrator for plot
printing as spreadshirt say digital prints don't last even a
year and its best to have a t-shirt plot printed.

Could anyone point me in the right direction to any tutorials on
t-shirt design or working with vector graphics in Adobe
Illustrator 10.

Thanks very much
Phil

Well of course they're going to say the compeition sucks =)

Heat transfered shirts can last plenty long as long as quality materials are used. I still have some shirts that were done with iron-ons that have lasted about 2 years now and they still look fine -- and a professional heat transfer set up will do a much better job than that.

Get a copy of Illustator Classroom in a Book. This is what Adobe certified instructor start out on. It is what I learned on 10 years ago. It's the fastest, easiest way to learn your way around Illustrator.

Hi Phil,

I have been creating vector images for many years from my own art as well as vectorizing exesting art for my customers. I use Adobe Illustrator 11 and Corel Draw 11. A program that might be helpful as far as vectorizing your own art is Adobe Streamline although I found that the best way although not the quickest is to scan in the art and redraw it by hand using the pen and bezier tools in these programs.
