Illustrator Work

This is a sampling of my Adobe Illustrator work.

For this project, we had to draw something metal in Illustrator. I used a photo of a stainless steel Lincoln Continental I had taken at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum in Auburn, Indiana. The fact the car was metal (not painted) made it much easier to draw! This was a great way to learn how to use the gradient mesh tool.

In sticking with the Auburn theme, another project was to take an existing logo and replicate it. My replica is on the left.

In this project, we had to hand draw something and make a beer or wine label out of it. The other requirement is that the drawing had to be stippled (i.e. drawn by making a series of dots instead of lines). When I heard about a beer called Careless Whisper IPA by Our Brewing Company in Holland, Michigan, I knew I had my product (I’m a big George Michael fan). Our Brewing doesn’t bottle their beer, so it was fun to have full creative control over the design. I don’t know about you, but when I think of Careless Whisper, I think of the sax line…
