If you’ve looked inside a 1960s children's book, you most likely have seen illustrations that look close to this style. The illustrations of each book are beautifully drawn with simple shapes and pencil-like brush strokes.
In this tutorial, we’ll make a 1960s children's book illustration using pencil vector brushes for Illustrator.
To follow along, I recommend adding RetroSupply’s VectorSketch Pencil Brushes to your arsenal of vector Illustrator brushes.
Of course, you don’t have to buy VectorSketch. You can also use Google for free vector brushes for Illustrator, but be aware that quality may not be the same.
