Vector - Music Grafitti

This image is kind of funky. But my wife liked it.

It is a vector experi- ment. I have been having an enjoyable time trying out differing methods of incorporating vector clip art with a traced bitmap image. Find the face? (upper left you can clearly see the eye).

I also tried out a different way of framing the image. I used both the freehand drawing tool in CorelDRAW adding to the width of the pen, and some painting of the jagged lines with PhotoPaint's paint brush.

I used the object multiply option quite a bit on the individual pieces of clip art I added to the picture. This gave them a transparency to allow what was below them to show through.

It is an older piece than the other Vector images I have shared recently here. I liked the way the others turned out better than this one. But I need to show my attempts even when I don't think they measure up to what I am trying to express as well as they could. I am an imperfect artist and some of my work isn't what I'd call my best.

Comments are always welcome. Or your reaction is ok too.


  1. This is beautiful. I can paint but by hand with the brush and oil paint or watercolor.

  2. Thank you for all your comments. I really appreciate it. - Kirk
