In this example I demonstrate how simple it is to create complex vector illustration using only Adobe Illustrator. This work was completed in hours, using predominantly basic shape tools. Several more advanced moves were also employed such as: offsetting paths, adding and modifying of anchor points, and “outline stroke”. Gradients were used “almost exclusively” for color. For the Apple text elements I imported a bitmap of the Apple logo “found online”, Image traced it and added the type from fonts available on my computer… matching the original copy as best I could. The whole thing was easy, took only a couple of hours and looks very convincing, Adobe Illustrator made it easy.
