First project with Adobe Illustrator CC

Laurie’s new job has her teaching preschool at the Jewish Educational Alliance here in Savannah. As part of her teaching, she needed a wheel that would let her students know what the day’s activity would be. I decided to create it for her using Adobe’s new Illustrator Creative Cloud.

Here is a PDF containing the final product: ActivityWheel

Activity Wheel

Most of the work I did involved finding Creative Commons images on the web and converting them to line drawings, then cleaning up the paths.

The activities are:

  • Monday – Sandbox
  • Tuesday – Painting
  • Wednesday – Skating
  • Thursday – Water table
  • Friday – Spray Painting (with paint in a spray bottle)

I really like the new Illustrator. I still haven’t decided if I can pay the $20/month for it, though. I have the Photoshop/Lightroom special of $9.99/month already.
