Using the tools you played with in this chapter and the selection methods you read about in Chapter 3, create a silly face such as the one below. Make an artboard 4 × 6 inches, and use as many tools as you can. In the process of creating even a silly face, you will learn a great deal about the tools, selecting items appropriately, sending objects to the back and bringing others to the front (page 36), and other features of actually producing a product.
Also spend some time in your own discovery mode—check out the options for line strokes and play with some of the color swatches that aren’t just flat color (such as the inside of the hole in the letter O, below). Share with others what you discovered.
