Hello, world! I haven’t posted here for a while, but now it’s a new year, and I heard a rumour that new years can involve starting things afresh. Things like blogs. I’m not really into making resolutions, but if I were, I’d definitely resolve to update my blog as often as humanly possible.
Speaking of the new year, I rang in 2009 at C’est What, a restaurant/bar/all around cool place in downtown Toronto. Pool, poutine, and awesome people were involved, so it was a really good time.
Every time I see a pool table I think of The Music Man. Anyone with me?
On another note, I’ve already completed my first poster design of 2009, and I’d like to share it with you!
For this poster, I used both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. In the past I was more of an exclusively-Photoshop kind of girl, but nowadays I really do like Illustrator a lot. If you couldn’t tell, I created the happy ghosts in Illustrator. I love vector images (which is what you’re creating in Illustrator) because you can blow them up to any size and they retain their smooth edges. This is because the images are actually based on mathematical formulae instead of pixels. It seems that math has come in handy in the real world after all!
Those are pretty much the cutest ghosts I’ve ever seen.
