Isometric Ice Cream Truck / Speed Art

In this Speed Art I’m creating an isometric ice cream truck based on the isometric grid. You can setup isometric grids in Illustrator in several ways, either by creating lines on a different layer and then locking this layer, or by creating an isometric grid pattern.

I created a tutorial on how to make such an isometric grid pattern and how to set it as guides. (Isometric Grid Pattern in Adobe Illustrator – How to Create Your Own Custom Pattern)

Once you setup your isometric grid, make sure to turn on the Smart Guides (View > Smart Guides). Now your are ready to create your isometric art 🙂

Here is a quick tip on how to create round isometric objects. Create your shape and then go to Effect > Stylize > Round Corners. By applying Round Corners this way, the isometric grid will be respected and we’ll get the proper look.
