For this project I thought to include myself over the years, emphasising different speech patterns and appearances over the years!

For the palette is was important for me to have lots of blue (my favorite color) + bright pink (as a kid I had a bright pink coat - as pictured below - which was my trademark look)
Overall, I loved trying out a different workflow and practice Illustrator! However, I feel like it would have taken me only a fraction of the time spent on this if I stayed in photoshop as the final outcome isn't a vector due to applying textures in photoshop...
