It's been a while since the last time I checked DeviantArt. It is always a nice place to find design inspiration. In this particular instance I was looking for some stylish illustrations for a personal project when I stumbled upon the work of Alice X. Zhang.

Back to my image a week after a short vacation, much needed. I have also been spending my time with the new Abduzeedo which is looking much sleeker and soon will be going live.

After a few tries I think I got a good result, at least worth sharing with you guys. Step 1 Starting with the simple path of the Abduzeedo logo in Illustrator.
