In pursuit of a colorful wall hanging to adorn the wood panels in my little boy’s room, I applied a few dots to a blank “Artboard” in Illustrator. Polka dots are good, but mine were not appealing. I made some adjustments.
By revolving a half circle, like the letter “D”, I happened upon what looked like a polka sphere. I then extruded a completed circle, making the letter “o” into a pipe-like figure. Bingo. I had the makings of a rudimentary planetary system. You know? Like the old solar systems made of Styrofoam balls and wooden dowels. #classicsciencefairproject
I extruded a few letters, adjusted the 3D angle for each of them, and moved the letters to the ends of the pipes.
Polka spheres are the new polka dots.
