I felt like I've been neglecting the pen tool lately, as I've been working in InDesign quite a bit for some freelance projects. Illustrator is the type of program that needs to be constantly used or you end up building a little rust on your skills, which leads to frustration when it comes time to actually need to use it. So I decided to freshen up the skills with this little project. This is a simple illustration made in Illustrator using basic shapes and some drop shadow to create a "paper" effect, which I love doing. The font used is Moonshiner.

UPDATE: So I decided to mix my love of Baseball with my love of color and illustration. I did some minor text changes and now the Blue Jay illustration can represent the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball team.
