The Key Project

Three Dimensions

Three Dimensions

For this piece I created the image below using Illustrator. I started from a picture I took of my keys and created a two dimensional artwork and used the 3d Extrude and Bevel Effect to render a three dimensional representation. I used Map Art to cover the three dimensional objects with artwork that I had created and turned into symbols. I would say that the hardest part of this undertaking would have been creating the clasp. My computer seem to freeze up every time I tried to apply the map art in a realistic fashion. I really enjoyed creating the key chain. As an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, I felt I had to represent!
