My frst op-
portunity to work with the pen
tool in the Adobe Illustrator program
was the creation of this strawberry. This as-
signment was preparation for a more highly
involved assignment to follow. I chose the straw-
berry because I wanted to draw many shapes
inorder to gain control over the pen tool.
Once I un-
derstood how the handles
assist in manipulating the line
drawn and learned some keyboard
short cuts which speed up drawing
time, I fell in love! I find it fun to ren-
der images in the Illustrator program,
and I feel the pen tool is a huge as-
set to the creation of my designs.

The Ducky
was my next illustrator chal-
lenge. From the original pixel based
image I have created this vector image
of a rubber ducky. We were also instruct-
ed to design a background of our choice. I
decided a sink with bubbles best suited my
ducky. I used repitition of circles and the
same fve colors to create the bubbles. I also
experimented with gradients on the sink.

For the
Metro logo the challenge was
to design a logo for a business that
incorporated a graphic image as well
as typography that was suited to the
business. I chose a type face that was not
only stylish but crisp enough to be read-
able as well as recognizable in a company
logo. I also tied the typography to the im-
age by creating the ‘M’ with the hair.

like I could use an even big-
ger challenge, I decided to recreate
one of my favorite sketches in Illustra-
tor. While the process was time consum-
ing, I had a lot of fun and the fnished
product is quite rewarding! I did use a
little gradient effect, but mostly it is just
solid shapes that create this image.

selfportrait
My typog-
raphy self portrait was an in-
teresting exploration into letterforms
and how they are shaped and how those
shapes can work together to create imagery.
After completeing this self portrait I have a
new appreciation for letterforms and their
many uses in art and graphic design.

orchid
The chal-
lenge with the woman with
the orchid was to return this image
to normal tones, as well as clean up
the numerous imperfections through-
out the original fle. Using adjustment
layers and healing tools in Photoshop,
I turned the image below into the image
at right. It was quite a labor intensive,
but the fnished product is a marked im-
provement from the original fle.

melonhead
The melonhead was an exer-
cise to teach the various selection
tools in Photoshop. We experimented
with the marquee tool, lasso and mag-
netic lasso tools to remove all the fruit
and vegetable shapes below and arrange
them to create the melon head.

collage
This collage was an in class ex-
ercise designed to teach us about pho-
toshop blend modes. We took six separate
images and blended them together to create
one image. This ability was essential for our
next project, which was to create our own pho-
to collage with an art or graphic design theme.

polaroid
If you can’t alreadly tell, I love
retro! So, for my photo collage I de-
cided to go old school, with a polaroid
camera. This particular image contains
thirteen layers, four blend modes and a
couple effects. Overall I was trying to create
a bright vivid image with some depth to it.

magazine
The GRC
magazine ad is where the
sideview illustration comes into
place. The problem here was to cre-
ate a magazine ad for the GRC depart-
ment at TMCC, as well as design a logo.
I wanted my ad to show the progression
of hand rendered illustration to a com-
puter rendered illustration. I achieved the
fnal look with a combination of Illustra-
tor and Photoshop, with the fnal out-
put of the magazine ad in InDesign.

Typography project which
involved the use of letterforms to
create imagery. We received a body
of text, and from this text we could
change nothing. We had to create four
layouts to portray a legible, readable
and to expressionistic layouts. Shown
here are my two expressionistic layouts
for my business, a dance studio.

The stamps handle is cre-
ate using Illustrators Envelope tool.
I drew a shape for each word on its
own layer, then “enveloped” the text
into that shape to create the effect of
type “wrapping” around a stamp handle.

The prob-
lem in this project was an
overwhelming phonebook adver-
tisement. We were to redesign the ad,
eliminating or adding any information
we deemed necessary. I chose to create
my text in the shape of a stamp. I feel the
negative space of this ad would draw the
readers eye towards it in a phonebook. The
stamp handle was created in Illustrator and
brought into InDesign to fnish the piece.
