This project has probably been my favorite out of all the ones we have done so far. I feel like Illustrator has been a little bit easier for me to get the handle of compared to some of the other programs we have used.
When I first was thinking about the concepts for this project, I wanted to incorporate a logo to create something for a food truck that my uncle is thinking about starting. I quickly realized it was a little too difficult to create a logo with the amount of skills I have. I then decided I would create a poster for a pretend food truck festival that would be happening in a suburb of Chicago, but still incorporate my original idea a little bit. I thought of doing a twilight theme so I could make stars and a moon and string lights. I traced these things off of photos like the guitar image tutorial we did. I was actually really impressed with how the picnic table turned out, but I did take a long time to do that. I think my favorite thing about the poster is the string lights. It looks really unique and adds to the charm I wanted to create. I know the cartoon trucks may look a little cartoon-ee, but I wanted it to seem a little corney and cute. Also, the brown part is supposed to be a curb, not a hill, and I did the best I could to angle the trucks and fit on the page as well. I also really liked the double layering effect that I did on the Twilight Bite. It seems like it almost has a holographic, glowing effect, which went with my moon and stars.
