Thank you to Leslie Harrod for the resources and calligraphy lessons.
For this assignment, I chose a witty and fun quote from the French writer Voltaire.
After writing the quote by hand, I scanned the quote and uploaded it to illustrator.
Using a combination of image trace, expand, warp and gradient mesh I was able to create the image you see above.
The light-bulb was constructed using the ellipse tool and rectangle tool. after the outline of the shape was constructed, I used the shape builder tool to combine them.
Thanks for reading.
