This is the first project I've done on this website, so I don't have much to go with it! I am really excited to work on more of these lessons every day!
I wanted to theme mine after the largest impact on my life. Vermont. I lived there until I was 18, and nothing is quite as beautiful as that state.
I ended up keeping a bit to the mold, but I decided to have a little fun with an outline of a popular mountain there, (Mt. Mansfield,) and capturing some maple leaves for the famous Vermont maple syrup!
The colors remind me a bit of the very road signs you get in that state seeing as they ban billboard ads. The state is literally named Green Mountain (Vert-mont.)
I would appreciate any critique as I go so that I can get better! I'm more skilled in Photoshop than Illustrator.
