I have said recently I wanted to create more content on my blog. One of my ideas was to recreate some of my paintings in illustrator and vectorize them. I started with one of my first oil paintings, Merlot. I loved the challenge and new way to look at my paintings. During the process I was able to make a great swatch library and symbol library. Both will be available!

I created this step by step video to show how it was done. I tried to pair it with a song that was just right, and as Billie Holiday just seemed the right kind of mood.

Here are some posters I created using the symbol library.
