This project taught us how to create a mandala on Adobe Illustrator. We were asked to create anything we wanted that we believe upon ourselves. I choose to freely draw whatever comes to mind and then edit it based on the finished drawing. I found out that doodling, it created strange creatures and liked how they turned out. After we turned them in and Lazar printed them on our material of choice.
I valued the mandala project because it helped me think more creatively and freely. During my process of making my mandala, I would create different designs I thought would look good together and after adding more and more shapes they began looking like creatures (which I did not intend to do). I decided to continue doing this method and it created some unique designs. The mandala project helped me think in a new creative way in which a pattern can be copied and look like another idea other than what it was intended to look like. This process can create some very unique patterns that I have not been thought of before.
