In January I shared what I thought was the replication of the design from this Japanese bowl. It took countless approaches (and failures) to create the bottom design and I was certain of my success until I looked at the design a few weeks later and realized that the spaces were uneven. Now that I've had an extra twelve weeks of Adobe Illustrator self-education under my belt, I decided to give it another go and take yet another approach. This time I know for certain that I am successful. Persistence pays off! Don't you agree that the top image is much better than the bottom image?
