By in men, sketches


Spent this week learning about some tools in Adobe Illustrator. You can’t just go in and start drawing stuff. But I followed some tutorials, and played around a lot. Very frustrating when your drawing vanishes, you can’t apply a certain gradient, or your edges all turn into a cat’s cradle. But I think I finally got the hang of it. So, that’s another tool in the toolbox!

The drawing above was inspired by Dyna Moe‘s work about the Mad Men TV show. Will try some other things. The completely clean line and shapes are things I’m not used to, generally messy and spontaneous as am.
