I’ve continued with my drawing and printmaking.  I decided to try my hand using Adobe Illustrator and have been taking a class at UC Berkeley extension.  The drawing tools in the app are so different from traditional drawing, each assignment has taken hours and hours to complete.  The class was completely filled with several people hoping to add the first day.  Our teacher started us off with the pen tool which is the hardest to learn, but one of the most useful tools in Illustrator.  By the next meeting, there were plenty of open seats – I guess people decided this was not for them.  Patience, persistence, and determination are put the the test in this class.

Here are some of my illustrations.
