Over the last 30 days I've learned a lot from my self taught usage of Adobe Illustrator. I can see the improvement in my designs due mainly to the the 'tricks of the trade' that I've literally stumbled upon over the last month. Even though I have very little interest in either wedding party invitations or holiday cards for businesses, I submitted designs for both because I wanted to keep challenging myself. I liked what I created for each of those challenges much better than what I did for my first challenge -the baby shower invite - which was actually more along my line of interest with the animal silhouettes I used in couple of them. Here are the designs I completed yesterday.
It occurred to me this morning after I checked to make sure that my trial Adobe Illustrator account really had expired (I had to make sure!), what am I going to do now? I wonder if I can talk Mr. Squareview into sinking the $600+ into buying my own version. Time to start saving my pennies. That said, I think I have something in the works that gets me back to my animal silhouette roots. More to come on that soon.
Along those lines, I mentioned (during my cab ride home J) yesterday that I was hoping to watch the Etsy Symposiums online today. I missed several that I wanted to see (stupid job responsibilities!) but the good folks at Etsy are posting the recordings here. Enjoy.
Happy weekend all!
