Very Cool Adobe Illustrator Spirograph Effect!

Can’t believe I didn’t know about this. This video has to be the coolest Adobe Illustrator shape trick I’ve ever seen.

If you hold down the “~” while using the Shape Tool (don’t hold Shift!) it draws continuously over and over as you adjust the size and position of your shape.

What?! #mindblown! Reminds me of playing with a Spirograph when I was little. Can’t wait to put this to use in my future designs.

Here’s my first go using the Star Shape. So much fun!
