Day 2 at the FabLab

Today we continued making our flat-pack characters, using the Roland CAMM1 vinyl plotter to make a rough draft of our final work. We used Adobe Illustrator CS2 to continue our vector editing and finalize our [animals, monsters, etc.]. In Adobe Illustrator today, I learned about the application of layers to take apart a drawing. My result was a beautiful, owl printed from a laser-jet, underneath a Mylar template, with one silver piece of vinyl for its minuscule beak. The next time I’m here they’ll have yellow, so then her beak can be its proper color!
