First, I have to say that I had a really great weekend. Although I wasn’t able to stop by a comic shop on Saturday (Free Comic Book Day), Trog and I did get to see Thor with two old friends, Chris (a.k.a. Erik the Odd) and Jeremy (a.k.a. The Friar of Bacon). Sunday, Trog and I spent the day with our mom, who had driven down from Utah last week and was staying with our sister out in Murrieta. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do much for my own personal work, or for Atomic Moo. So, sorry about that. Thanks to Trog for stepping in, and Erik the Odd for an awesome review of Thor.
Anyhow, on to the main point of this post. I’m a huge fan of vector art. In fact I do a lot of it myself. Most of the downloadable content I’ve put on this site are vector based, as are all the logos I’ve ever created, and much of my iStock uploads. I’ve worked with both Freehand and Illustrator (I prefer Illustrator—I know Freehand has some cool features, I was just always more comfortable with Illustrator), and I know how time consuming creating vector work can be. I can’t imagine how much time this girl spent on these illustrations. Check them out below. They were created by vector artist Jessica Finson, and you can see more of her great work on her DeviantArt.com gallery. I have to wonder if she was using a tablet and the brush tool on these… I dunno? I can’t imagine doing all this with just the pen tool. Either way, very impressive. Great job Jessica!
