This week I taught myself how to use Adobe Illustrator. I improved upon my creative design process. When I began this assignment, I had two distinct ideas, and sketched them both out to decide which I could execute more effectively. This improved the overall quality of the artwork I produced. Before this lesson, I thought that the only ideas that got made into art were original ones, ones thought up by the artists themselves. I now realize that nearly all art stems from a borrowed idea. This means that art is still considered original when an existing idea is remixed. During this unit I had a hard time creating realistic looking objects on the computer. Computers are intended to be perfect, though we all know that the real world is not. If I could go back and redo this project I would've used graphite on paper instead of creating my art on Illustrator to keep a more authentic, lifelike feel. In the art I created, I think it is harder to relate to due to its sharp lines and lack of imperfections. Simply put, it looks too fake.
