Variation on playing with size

I wanted to use real photos for this idea but none of the ones I wanted to use were much more than 72ppi so they would not be suitable for printing. I started off by opening the picture in Illustrator and using he pen tool to make a vector. It took a very long time without making as much progress as I had hoped. At this point I decided to use live trace. I may need a number of different vectors for this project and there simply isn’t the time to make them all from scratch.

This site was helpful to learn about live trace: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2010/11/15/illustrator-s-live-trace-sketch-to-vector/

I am happy with this outcome because I think its fun and I think its eye-catching. There is quite a lot going on though. I’m going to make another variation and see if I can simplify it.
