In this lesson I have seen how to modify letters and sentences how I want in illustrator . In Illustrator we need to select the Type tool for then write some text.
Then I learnt how to change the structure of the letters. By going on Window then Type. I have changed the sizes of the letters and their colors, also I could change the kind of fonts and modify the space between letters as I wanted as my will.
I tried different tools in the Type tool selection.
By using the pen tool, and then Type on a path Tool ,I can write on the contours of the shape.Also by using the Area type tool I can write in a shape.See the examples below
Then I had the task of experiment to reproduce my face by using only letters like David Carson’s artwork.
I took a photo of myself on photo-booths and placed it on illustrator. I locked the layer of my profile image for not make it move during the task. I used my illustrator’s Type tools knowledge for reproducing Carson’s work.
