I designed this to be a banner for the Tar Sands Blockaders (http://www.tarsandsblockade.org). Originally, it was painted on a sheet. We only had brown paint and a few black sharpies, so:
I decided to draw it out again for this class.
I don't have that much experience with Illustrator, but I watched the first two lectures and have made it this far.
Now I'll go check out the next lesson and see what I can do! I want to arrange the text and clouds some more to make them all fit just right and add some dimension to it all.
Let me know what you think!
