Week 7: Adobe Illustrator
Week seven brought more failures and successes in my quest to learn Adobe Illustrator. I'm grateful to finally be on the path. The other day I realized that I could be learning a language this way too. I researched Russian Mennonite material culture for four years and had to drop it because my career became too busy. At the time, I wished that I had a better grasp of German. That was fourteen years ago and had I learned a word a day, I'd have a pretty good vocabulary by now. It's never too late.
The repeat element in the above patterns was made using compound paths and the alignment tool. The starburst and 13 petalled flower still elude me. Sigh.
