I started thinking that I wanted to do a camping theme and make all my stickers be about nature. I then decided I wanted to do something that meant a little more to me. I served my mission in the Dominican republic and there they have a slang for “what’s up” which is “que lo que” I decided to center my theme around that. I sketched the words and then chose to make a coconut because I had one of these every day and a gecko because they would fall from the ceiling on a daily basis.
I have always wanted to do a geometric low poly type of design in something so I figured why not now? I really like how it makes them look abstract but you can still tell what the stickers are.
To finalize everything I made an outline around the entire shape and then added a bit of a shadow just for more texture and detail. I really like how they finally turned out.
Overall this was a long process but once I chose something I really cared about it made things go smoothly. I think my skill set is developing more and I finally know my way around the tools in Illustrator!
