another icon

I made one more icon for practice, this time a sewing machine. I made it in a grey gradient and then used recolor artwork to make it blue. It was a cool feature.


The intent here was to create an icon for a device such as a phone or Ipad. I chose a cooking pot that might be used for a cooking application. This thing again used many layers to get the reflective qualities of both the pot and the button to show properly.

ILLUSTRATOR: Storybook Illustration

Here I was to create a two page spread for a children's book using Illustrator.
I used so many layers that I nearly go lost in it! I had to go in and rename them all so I knew what they were. I dried many different effects here to learn as much as possible.

ILLUSTRATOR: magazine subscription card

This week I made a card that would be torn out of a magazine if you wanted to subscribe. Shown are both the front and back of the card. This used gradients, patterns, draw inside, lines, effects, and lettering.
