This project was a design for my print-on-demand shop. After my first draft, I changed my course entirely, deciding to create a Pop-Art style poster using the color yellow.

Challenges
Coming up with ideas to make this design more interesting. 

Realizing more than halfway through that I should have used references, and then continuing anyway, without any references.

I spent a lot of time scaling this polka-dot pattern. It is somewhat tedious to repeatedly click on Object>Transform>Scale and then unchecking those default boxes each time. I need to streamline this process, maybe create actions or just keyboard shortcuts. I really just need more practice with patterns. I was discouraged because I was able to see the pattern swatch borders within my design. I wondered if this was normal and if this would be visible when I saved the PNG.

AI Tools & Functions Used
Patterns (pre-made), Clipping Masks, Warp (zig-zag), Pen Tool, Elipse, Pathfinder, Offset Path, Spiral tool (on first draft only)

Above, you can see what this design looks like on some of Redbubble's products.
