My adoration for my canine companions rivals the deepest love affairs in history, and I am always looking for new ways to celebrate how amazing they are. In keeping with this month’s Design & Photography theme, in today’s video I show you how to create your own custom silhouette piece using Adobe Illustrator and a robot cutter (the aptly-named Silhouette machine). I describe a low-tech option as well, so never fear, non-tech friends. Check out the complete step-by-step tutorial over on Make: Projects. Do not fear Illustrator or the robot, this was my first time using both and my silhouettes turned out great! This is encouraging me to try new tools and programs I have yet to master. Who do you adore so much you just have to have their silhouette hanging in your home? Let me know in a comment below. Enjoy the video!
