Week 28: Adobe Illustrator

Flowers for Planet Mars © Karen Thiessen 2012
Completing Flowers for Planet Mars is a breakthrough in my Adobe Illustrator practice. I started making the "flower" units in April and made three times more than I was able to use. Several times I opened the file, played with it a bit, then left it to incubate. The distribution of the units is loose-- there are gaps to let the design breathe. With this many units, the design definitely needs breathing room. Summer is the perfect time to tackle UFOs.*

UFOs = UnFinished Objects (not spaceships from Planet Mars!)
