What is single weight line illustration?

Single weight line art (AKA Monoline) is a design trend that uses lines of one thickness to build stunning, geometric, patterned artwork. This beautifully balanced style is paradoxically simple and complex at the same time as it uses detailed patterns in large areas as if they were blocks of color and tone. Getting the balance right can be a tough challenge and this is where the Line Art Lab comes in:

I spent countless hours developing the brushes and patterns together so that they work in harmony, I’ve ensured that the range of resources is diverse and expansive so, you’ll always find the right tool for creating art in this decorative and intricate style, and the patterns have been graded into three tonal groups so you can use them to add depth to designs quickly and easily.

Save yourself hours with this handy design shortcut and start drawing single weight line art today!

The pack contains all of these fantastic components:

  • The Brushes

This huge and diverse selection features over 100 brushes. These range from outlines, floral, banners, arrows, waves, zigzags, chains, borders and beyond. The majority of the brushes are pattern brushes.

If you are a tablet user, you’ll be pleased to know that a version of the brushes with pressure sensitivity enabled is included (please note that this feature only works in Illustrator CS5+).

  • The Patterns

Over 100 decorative patterns are included. You’ll find geometric, linear, stars, waves, herringbone, scales, chevrons and many more. The patterns have been graded into groups of density – so you can use them to create tonal contrast within your designs.

All patterns were created using only strokes so, you can adjust the weight if required. Instructions on how to do this are included.

  • A quick reference guide

This will help you quickly find the right brushes and patterns for the task in hand (Please note: This feature is available for CS5, CS6 and CC only). A PDF version has been included for Illustrator CS1-4 users.

  • Example files

A selection of the preview images. Use these to see how I achieved the look (Please note: These are available for CS5, CS6 and CC only).

  • Instructions

A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then adjust the brushes and patterns is supplied.

    This is the Swiss Army Knife of design for me. I always find the brush or the pattern
    I need, when I find myself in a difficult situation. It’s also good to play, sometimes just choosing a random pattern and a couple of brushes can be a good start for an impromptu drawing. Thank you Jeremy for the huge amount of resources!
