Helen has done it again; what a great class! I saw the cover photo with the "love" heart and thought about an idea I had a while back to do state outlines with words inside. Once again, I didn't know how, I just thought it would be cool. Well, thanks to Helen, I now know a lot more about envelope distortion!
So, with the complex shape of our great state, I ended up drawing 4 polygons to fit each line into, but I think that the effect is just what I was looking for. Can't wait to tackle some of my former home states as well!
