Goals and Milestones

Ok, I've got some insane, lofty, long-term goals. One of them is to learn Illustrator. AND with a big fat huge-a-monga ThankYou to Kim over at True-Up, I now have a great resource to aid in achieving this goal. She posted tutorials by Eliane Polvinen. Holy smokes, Ms. Polvinen explains things so well and the tutorials are so easy to follow along. I'm only at the beginning of my journey, but I cannot wait to keep going. {It totally makes me want to go back to college for a MFA.} So here's the first *neato* thing I made:

It looks easy, right? Look- a shirt. You could draw this up right now with a pen in about two seconds, but to have it look "right" in Illustrator it takes a handful of tutorials. Small potatoes, I know. -But I'm learning-

I don't know if I'll have the shirt made up/printed. It would be fun to wear around Spring Market in Pittsburgh, though. And I did do the mock-up in brown because I love to wear brown. We shall see.

I'm stoked that I'm working towards my lofty, insane goals. Thanks for following along. Who knows what I'll draw up next?? ~jen~
