Week 48: Adobe Illustrator

Last week I extolled the virtues of knowing how to make specific angle triangles (s.a.t.'s) in Adobe Illustrator. Here's more proof that s.a.t.'s are awesome. 

My grandpa had a few Hawaiian shirts in his wardrobe that he wore with panache. His funeral was on one of the hottest days of the year (six months earlier grandma's funeral took place during an icy blizzard!) and before the funeral service my mom, the matriarch of the family, insisted that family and guests remove their ties and jackets in the sweltering church. One cousin wore a Hawaiian shirt in memory of Grandpa. Grandpa would have approved. I could see Pineapples as a modern update of the Hawaiian shirt. It would also look great as wallpaper.
