Over the course of this year, especially in the first quarter, I think I learned a lot more about Illustrator than I had known prior. Last year in Graphic design, when we used illustrator, a lot of the focus was on working with text. This year, our big illustrator project was the Ryan McGinnis project, where we were having to translate pieces of art into icons using illustrator. Through this project, I had the oppurtunity to work with, and therefore learn a lot more about, the pen tool. I definatley have better control over it than I did before, and now with the understanding of how to use the convert anchor point tools, my work comes out less sloppy.
