Despite my cold I managed to practice Illustrator this week. Unless I take a week off for Christmas I'll practice AI 48 weeks in 2012. When I started this project in January, I assumed that I'd know all of the basics by now, but I don't. This year-long project will stretch into 2013 and I hope by December 2013 I'll have mastered the basics and more. Pattern continues to be my passion and text has captured my attention. It's fun pulling them together for my Monday quotes posts.
