So I have been in hiding for a while... I apologize. We did some major events for work all in a row with large numbers of people and I have been planning like crazy. Now that everything is done life is starting to slow down again. Whew. No more festivals for a while I hope. :)
In other news, I have recently been taking an illustration class on Skillshare from Brad Woodard. This is the first class I have taken so far on this site but I am loving it. He is teaching us about illustrating Colour, Pattern and Texture. Usually I use Photoshop for most of my work but I have really been wanting to learn Illustrator. So to challenge myself for this class I have been trying to do everything in Illustrator. It has been a struggle and some times I feel like it takes me so much longer to even put the design to reality, but I have made it work... sort of. The class ends soon, which is sad but I feel that I have learned a lot so far.
Here is my interim design. It is not really done yet but I am a little stuck. We are illustrating either the word LOUD or the word quiet. This design is a representation of quiet. Let me know your thoughts.
