In addition to solid colors and gradients Illustrator offers a third fill option, tile patterns. A tile pattern is a rectangular container that repeats over and over again across the course of a shape. And unlike gradients, tiles are applicable to fills and strokes. Technically they're not hard to make. But making them repeat seamlessly, that's another matter. It takes a reasoned and deliberate approach to ensure that each and every aspect of the tile blends seamlessly into the next tile. Which is why I offer this chapter.
