Week 23: Adobe Illustrator

Wonky Squares Pattern II © Karen Thiessen 2012
It's a good thing that I'm naturally a persistent and curious person. Otherwise, I would have abandoned learning Adobe Illustrator a few weeks ago. When I'm in a slump, I return to old patterns, seeing how I can recreate them using new skills. Wonky Squares is a variation of the Drunken Squares pattern that I shared on week 14. For this pattern, I distorted the squares using the direct selection tool and then added a dash of a second colour here and there. To top it all off, I layered the pattern on top of itself, shifting it slightly. Let's hope my curiosity and persistence hold up long enough for my motivation to return.
