Popping my Illustrator Cherry!

Sorry for the long absence, but with the less than ideal internet connection in the hotel on the Isle of Man and being really tired when I got back, I’ve just not had the will to turn on the laptop until today. Anyway, I’m back to normal now, so thought I’d better update the blog!

Last week I finally stumped up the cash and indulged myself by buying the Adobe CS5 Master Suite.  I spent most of today installing the software and getting rid of old versions of Photoshop and Dreamweaver and a selection of other software that does the same thing as the Master Suite. Then there was the fun of ensuring that all my Photoshop presets were copied over and setting up my preferred workspace view.  Well once I’d gotten that out of the way it was about 10 pm and I started at 2 pm!

After all that I felt like I needed to have a little play around, so opened up Adobe Illustrator, which I’ve never used before.  It took a little getting used to, but with the help of the lovely Ben who’s a bit of an expert in Illustrator I came up with this:

Irene the Illustration - Copyright R.Weal 2010

I’ve called her Irene the Illustration and she was created without a graphics tablet I might add. It was good fun and she does look similar to the face doodles that I occasionally draw in notebooks and on scraps of paper. I can thoroughly recommend having a play with Illustrator if you haven’t done so already.

Happy electronic doodling!
