Last week we continued our study of Illustrator layers and transformations. This week we take a look at type in Adobe Illustrator.

GRM23 Week 9, session 2

Students were instructed to bring in a photograph with the intent to transform the image into a graphic representation. We will use the exercise which I call “Otto, the Weiner Dog,” in order to demonstrate and practice the following:

  • Illustrator’s layers and the “stacking order”
  • strokes and fills
  • transformations
  • patterns

This exercise also ties into our discussion of copyright after listening to Terri Gross’ radio interviews with Shepard Fairey and Manny Garcia.

Basilio Quinonez – Beta Comps

This is some of the work I have done in GR 23 so far.  I believe there is plenty of room for improvement and could be used as part of a portfolio.
