Have you?ve ever wanted to add a second stroke to an object or text in Illustrator? Then you?ve realized that Illy only seems to allow one stroke . There is a way around it. I?ll show you how.
Now, make sure there is no fill, and pick an artistic brush stroke to apply to the stroke. (The Illustrator Brush Library I used is “Artistic_Ink” – pictured below)
Use the Pen Tool and create a path like the image on the left. Drag it to the Brushes Library pallate. If your Brushes is not showing, go to Window > Brushes of press F5.
