Anyway, these coupons are fun. Maybe I should check out those non-local newspapers more often.
Doodled up this icon for randomfox's journal using Adobe Illustrator CS:
I started with a sketch on paper. Then I scanned it in and placed it into an Illustrator document. After setting the image transparency to a low level, I used the pencil tool to trace over the lines. After that, it was just a matter of setting the fills and tweaking the strokes on all the shapes. Being that it's the first thing I've ever done with Illustrator, I made quite a number of mistakes along the way. Fortunately, once I saw what went wrong (some things are hard to see until you add a solid fill), it was easy to make corrections with the pencil tool.
