Beginning Graphic Design class

This summer, I decided to take an introductory graphic design course. Since my job right now is officially "graphic designer," I felt like I could at least take ONE real graphic design class! I know I can definitely be better at design, and I feel like there is a lot for me to learn.

Here are the first few assignments we've had...

Value strip using only black and white



Playing with shapes in Illustrator to create some sort of interesting design



Using the pen tool in Illustrator to create a black and white icon from a drawing

My original drawing:


My icon (possibly in progress, not sure yet):

    your icon looks good!
