For these icons, I decided to create Alaskan animals. I grew up in Alaska and I was excited to try to convey the wildlife of the great north.

I took my sketches into illustrator and using the blob tool, filled the body and shadows.

Then I went over those shapes with a pen tool, simplifying into an outline. 

After I completed that, I went through and changed them to face the same way. 

My rules included sharp endpoints, outlined shapes, all with one line.

 

Here is the finished project.
