Illustration Friday - Strong


The weather is turning colder and the first snow of the season was falling when I made this yesterday. On a technical note this was my first illustration using Adobe Illustrator. To say I have no idea what I'm doing in that program is an understatement but you don't learn if you don't try.

For a first shot in Illustrator you did wonderful. Good job. When I teach my Illustrator class, I always recommend the newbies get the Illustrator book published by Peachpit press. (I don't work for them or get a kick back). Good luck with it.

Awesome!
As for someone who has never worked digitally I am mighty impressed that you could do something this good on a first attempt.
(note to self: must get Adobe Creative Suite!)

BTW, I'm a geek too!
