ILLUSTRATOR: another icon



This one started with a whole sewing machine, and in the process of simplifying, I only kept the minimum needed to indicate sewing and made it into an icon and a Iphone type icon.

ILLUSTRATOR: Google Logo


This week was "make your own GOOGLE logo" week. I like painting so I had to make one that covered that topic. I started with a real Google logo and made it all black with live paint and then I used the "paint inside" feature to draw a radial gradient inside of the letter. I did a little painting over it for fun with the blob brush and made some symbols for paint splatter to add at the end. I created the brushes and made them fit over the letters. Finally I added a drop shadow and called it good. I thought about using a tie die graphic I created and a clipping mask to make it show through the letters, but I settled on the paint idea instead.
