Greetings from Rhode Island!
I finally decided to "take the bull by the horns" as they say and registered for an Adobe Illustrator class. Since the very first version of Adobe Illustrator was born while I was in Art School, and, since my art school did not even have a computer in it until the year after I graduated in 1988, I sort of missed the boat on digital design a while back. I am self-taught in Photoshop, and, probably could use a good lesson there too! The AI class has been great so far, making less of a mystery of this still complex vector-based design product. Our assignment for this week was to create a "Greetings From" postcard. Since vintage versions of this card are fabulous examples of old school graphic design, I embraced a vintage theme as I solved the "visual problem." Also, it goes right along with the vintage travel items still being listed at Carmen and Ginger..what a great coincidence!
