France in the Summer

Since graduating in advertising, I've used Illustrator mostly to create icons and wireframes. I think recreating this poster will help me explore in the paintbrush effects and layers.

Here is my first stage. I put in the background filler and large people with the pen tool:

Then I used the paintbrush and blob brush for the sketched-looking blue people and houses:

And added these people with the pen tool, but I started with a white background for the full person and then put the colors as new shapes over top so they will have that vintage, layered-color look.

I couldn't find the fonts used so I built them out of shapes: 

After filling in the details and matching the colors exactly, here is my final! 

And here is a comparison of my final (left) next to the original (right):
