Playing around with Adobe Illustrator

Hey there, everyone! Guess I’m back from under the rock. I’ve been gone for quite a while, now that I think about it. It actually all boils down to that one week I skipped a post because of my school work…I just always kept on promising myself that I’d publish my post the next day, but never actually did.

Now, more than half a year later, that post is no longer relevant! So much has happened in the past 6 months that I feel like a new individual – like a better version of my previous self, more like. It’s been more of a roller coaster, with my IB projects and deadlines, college applications, and whatnot! Not that my life at the moment is any less bizarre. But I just wanted to come back to this place where I knew my thoughts and feelings mattered and where no one would frown upon my quirks – a place where there were other quirky and weird people like me.

Anyway, enough with my rant about my OWN life (how self obsessed I’ve become!), and let’s move on to what the title of this post is – playing around with Adobe Illustrator. So I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this, but over the last year I’ve played around with this software and let me tell you, it has been amazing. It has helped me out with so many school projects in even the smallest of ways that I am SO glad I took the time out and actually attended a beginner’s course on it. It is extremely easy to learn and use and I would recommend all my readers to try their hand at it.

Illustrator allows me to keep in touch with my creative side even in my busy life between exams and assignments – it actually makes me want to  create my own images to include in even my MATH assignments! Whenever I feel kinda low, I find myself double clicking on the Illustrator icon on my laptop’s desktop.

Since right now I might not be able to write full fledged posts (I will whenever I can…) I’ve decided to post a series of images that I’ve created using the Adobe Illustrator software. They’re not that fancy…mostly amateur and basic projects, but I am proud of the fact that I have made them. I’d like to make one thing clear though, many of my creations have been created with the help of other artists’ works as well. Different fonts that I have used and sometimes even background images have actually been created by fabulous artists and not actually me. I have not always been able to find the original source of these creations and therefore have not been able to properly site them. If you think that I have used your work for my project, please let me know so that I can give you due credit!

So I often just save phrases or quotes that I come across on Instagram or Snapchat and use them. I have done that for this project as well. I made this image a while ago and well, I wanted to post it today because I think it kinda perfectly represents my life right now – me always in a bun frantically trying to get my work done ans submit my assignments on time (thanks to my procrastination). The title of this project, quite simply according to the image, is A MESS

MY LIFE IS MESSIER THAN NY BUN #1-01

As evident, this image is quite simplistic in nature… Please feel more than welcome to use this picture yourself. Honestly, I even print these images out and stick them on my wall sometimes. Since I had to export the Adobe file and convert it into a JPEG to include this image in my post, the quality has significantly deteriorated. If you would like to use an image with higher resolution, leave a comment down below…I’ll see what I can do! (I’ll probably email it to you as a PDF, retaining the high quality and resolution).

I know it’s not much, but I hope you liked this post. I’ll try to be more regular this time and include topics with a wide variety in my posts. If you have any suggestions, be sure to let me know!

Thanks for taking out the time and reading my post!
