The final class needed to complete my Web Design Certificate degree was Illustrator. I took it the same time as I did Multimedia Animation and I'm very happy that I did! I think if I had taken Multi Media earlier and without Illustrator, that class would have been harder to do. To say the least, I enjoy drawing in Illustrator more than flash or any other program.

Project 1: Create a flower arrangement

Project 2: Create a Banner for a textile Museum. Some sort of pattern needed to be used.

Project 3: Dust jacket cover for a book titled Recovering Eden. 

Since I already used Remington Steele and Scarecrow and Mrs. King in my other class as well as the Bonnet House, I decided why not here too? It didn't matter where we got the images from! And if I hated the live tracing tool and being limited to only a few colors, I decided I should amuse myself this way instead. I just realized I didn't save the final copy of it either so it isn't even completed. The title looked a little snazzier.

Since the image is quite big here is sections of it blown up:
 The synopsis on the front flap is:

Amanda couldn’t believe it. Five years chasing down stories and she’d never lost her cool before. Now the woman who thrived on excitement would be forced to kick up her heels and relax.

The Recovering Eden mental health spa is a place where peace and tranquility reign. But leave it to Amanda to be in the middle of everything that could go wrong.

Accidents begin happening around the spa. Detective Lee of the local PD is convinced the culprits are just local teens having fun. Amanda isn’t so sure and she intends to get to the bottom of it. But when Lee seems more interested in investigating her heart, Amanda fears that her temper might not be the only thing that needs reigning in.
