Illustrator Designs VII

VIII??? Pffft, Star Wars has nothing on me!

And speaking of films, this week I’m featuring the film strip I created for my personal project. I used specific shapes to build the strip, which I really liked. The weird part is when I started, I had just a rough idea in my head so I just started digitally sketching and building things out. So what I ended up creating was an odd combination of strict grid for spacing AFTER I started winging it.

At first I thought I should start over, but I really liked the precise inexactness. And the one cell that’s larger became the home to a focal image, which really worked well for providing emphasis. Happy accidents sometimes. Either way, I enjoyed the exercise, and learned once again how important grids are. One of these days, I’ll remember that at the beginning!
