The way I approach what I study in my Never Stop Learning blog is to first think of “what is it that I don’t like about my design experience?” Early-on in my Adobe Illustrator career, my pieces suffered from LACK OF BACKGROUND =D Looking back I think it was SO hard for me to produce a Subject, that a background was an afterthought or NEVER thought of at all.
For Never Stop Learning 92 I created a video Creative Background with a Single Stroke which inspired this post. This background was done with a single stroke but there was some preparation done beforehand.
My intent with the “Creative Background” posts is to challenge the way I see them in Illustrator. That should result in me building better,more creative backgrounds, FASTER =D I guess you can say I’m trying to get things done without the program getting in the way.
Want to see how I created this background? Check out this video and I’ll go over it step by step:
This was my study material:
