Week 5: Adobe Illustrator
It took five weeks for me to start to dream in Adobe Illustrator again. My learning continues to be guided by my curiosity, so it is higgledy-piggledgy. I saw the single blue repeat element on a tile in an old Livingetc magazine and realized that it was simply two squares, with one at a 45 degree angle. This design provided an opportunity to play with the compound path feature and naturally I had to put the element into repeat. Aren't the negative spaces divine?
