Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio, and I'm going to show you how to make a lot of squares with a brush in Illustrator. So, the first thing you're going to want to do is you're going to go over to your brush tool, which is right below your line segment tool. And you're going to go up to right next to your style option, you've got this little window and this is going to, if you open, go to the left, this little button right here, go, click it and go down to decorative and then go to decorative scatter. And then, this window will pop up. And this window has quite a few options for scattering squares, so I'll show you a couple of different ones. You've got your three-dimensional ones, you've got your ones that have shapes on the inside. You've got your fancy multiple color and multiple squares and the list really goes on. But, the key, the trick to using these at all is to make sure you remember where your path is. So, when you're drawing you'll see a little dotted line. That's just going to tell you where everything is going to go, so that you know, you know where. And then, in the end, you can always click your direct select tool and you can change the direction, you know, it's going in if you feel like it and what kind it is, like so. My name is Alex, and this is how you draw a lot of squares with a paintbrush in Illustrator. Thank you.
