I did this in Illustrator for the Elementary’s school carnival. It’s just a poster of the menu for food. I found a tutorial on how to create a chalkboard in Illustrator and it was fairly easy. I think it came out great.
I did my Vector-Portrait all in illustrator. It involved using the brush tool to get the details of the hair into full effect. The pen tool was used to actually make the whole project “outline” of the project.
The second illustration project was also all done in Ilustrator. This project could have been anything you wanted it to be. I also used a new tool for this illustration project which was the blob brush.
