As were the other projects for my digital boot camp class, this assignments was supposed to give students practice with an Adobe program, in this case Illustrator. If I remember correctly, we were supposed to create a self-portrait with Illustrator. I had messed around with Illustrator a few times in the past, but finding it difficult to understand (I would try to draw with it like I did in Photoshop, which, of course, didn’t really work), I had stuck with Photoshop. Still not really understanding how Illustrator worked, I believe I made this image solely with the pencil tool (using my mouse).
Here is my original description of the piece:
An easy assignment with a not-so-easy program. Especially when you’ve always avoided Illustrator at all costs, dead-set on using only Photoshop (but only because you don’t know how to use Illustrator >_>)…
For this assignment, we simply had to draw a self-portrait of ourselves using Illustrator. The drawing also had to include some words.
