Here is where I will post for a few of my classes, entries will delete after every class.
The top one looks like a sunflower! It would be cool to redo Van Gogh's sunflowers in illustrator!
These are amazing I really like what you've done with the 1st one. Nice choice in colors. The vibe I get from this makes me feel powerful yet relaxed at the sam time (it's weird I know). And if you stare at it a bit it seems to grow or move a little. Nice optical affect. And I really like the one of Mr. Butcher, it's very simple and soft. Great work!
Your shapes are amazingly complex. I also like the softness that you gave to the live trace image of Mr. Butcher.
