I am curious to see if there's a quick way to draw a curved line with thickness that changes in illustrator, like this sample:

Also, is there a way to apply this to an outlined stroke?

  • Cap: round
  • Profile: triangle
  • Flip Along: start or end

To apply this type of path in a shape, make an Art Brush with the described path and stroke the shape with that brush:
