Week 3: Adobe Illustrator

Hexagon pattern repeat module

My insatiable curiosity (yes, I read ALL the Nancy Drew mysteries when I was a child and my mom accused me of asking too many questions) and perseverance finally paid off. This was the stubborn Japanese hexagon design that I wrestled with last week in Adobe Illustrator. I approached it from many different angles and undid and redid this design at least a dozen times before what finally succeeded was creating the top module and carefully putting it into repeat. My first attempts involved making a grid with 60 degree angled lines. The good thing about failing so often is that I am learning parts of Adobe Illustrator quite well.
