This piece is produced from at least 10 different small designs I was doodling on paper one day. It was an exercise and study in shapes of various elements used in many different patterns.
I photographed my drawings and used Adobe Capture to convert to a digital format. After that I was able to bring them directly into Illustrator. I have really enjoyed using the Adobe Creative Cloud. I’m able to do quite a few designs on my phone and then import them into the computer later one with just a few clicks here and there.
I was very happy with the results of these elements. As I look at this particular image, in my mind I see the movement of machines, gears and contraptions. I can hear the buzz and grumble of the machines as they vibrate and spew forth their products, whatever they may be.
