Art Deco isn't really trendy right now. Still, it's one of my favorite genres. I haven't tried to create an Art Deco-inspired piece in a long time, so this was a lot of fun for me. The emphasis on strong, angular shapes makes this style really well-suited for vector illustration. If I were able to use gradients, I could have created a closer approximation of the style.

I know it's been a while. I know how far behind I have fallen. I had doubts that I would ever come back to this. My eyes have turned to the next big thing - though maybe a bit prematurely. I want to continue to study vector illustration. My plan is to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud, get acquainted with Illustrator (re-acquainted I suppose), and work on bigger and better portfolio-worthy pieces (in larger formats with more colors). Also, a portfolio.

That's a bit down the line. I won't be abandoning the stickers. It was just really easy to get distracted when I got lost in this project.
