I was so excited to be trying Illustrator for the first time, as I have wanted to learn how to create my own designs on the computer ever since starting foundation. I have never been particularly gifted when it comes to computer stuff, so I was surprised how naturally this style of working came to me! I found it so impressive how you can create such detailed images just by using rectangles and ellipses.
What I also like about this way of working is how you can take a motif (for example, the one above) and create several different versions very quickly, which gives more time for trying out different styles. I will definitely be using Illustrator a lot more from now on.
