Back to My Roots


Inspired by DKNG's "Mastering Illustrator" course, I utilized their techniques to recreate the iconic parts of the small town where I grew up. Midway, Utah is a small swiss town nestled at base of Mount Timpanogos. It is the home of Swiss Days each year in the late summer, which is a large craft and food fair that brings in people from all over the world. This little jewel of a town holds a special place in my heart.

For this project, I utilized the following skills from DKNG's class: (

  1. Save for Web 
  2. Live Corners 
  3. Targeting Layers 
  4. Giving Depth to Simple Shapes 
  5. Custom Pattern Stroke 
  6. Vector Halftone Patterns 
  7. Opacity Mask




This project helped me to really apply the tips that I learned from DKNG, and I had a lot of fun doing it. As an ode to DKNG, I even included a little wagon like the one in their video. :) Hope y'all enjoy!
