I think I found a new way to reduce my blood pressure, or just relax: Drawing banners of all types! I must really be weird or something [and I see heads nodding the affirmative all round], but I really enjoyed drawing banner after banner. I drew every one you demonstrated Peggy, and then I tried to draw some that were a bit over the top.
Anyway, I felt it was finally time to reign it in and post something for a project, so I plopped a version into Illustrator and went for it. This way I got to work on my Illustrator skills, and produce something for this course. Now that I've done it in Illustrator, I feel like it looks like a cartoon (less desirable), which means I have a long way to go developing my proficiency in Illustrator.
Below is the project image. Following that you will find some of the fun I had making banners in my sketch book.
Thanks, Peggy for making something simple, very gratifying to create.
