Week 65: Adobe Illustrator

Asian Sock 1 © Karen Thiessen, 2013
Ordinary ephemeral objects hold potential. Asian Sock 1 is derived from a "support device" that most folks throw away once they bring it home from the store. Can you guess what it is? I photographed it, traced it in Adobe Illustrator, and then went to town radically transforming it and then putting it into repeat. I had so much fun that I created several patterns inspired by this mundane object.

My "book learning" of AI has stalled– it's been a while since I followed a lesson from the manual, but I continue to learn new things that are so exciting that I am compelled to play with them at length before returning to the book. It's all good.
