So I traced a series of shapes to give the impression of grocceries in a trolley. I first used the pen tool making intersecting lines and then using the shapebuilder tool filled with colour and removed overlapping paths.
I have encountered a problem however if I do want to tweak any shapes afterwards there are gaps. I guess Im starting to realise that the shapebuilder tool has a kind of cookie cutter effect. I am wondering if there is a better method of doing this with this particular random mosaic of shapes? Perhaps just creating individual shapes instead? I think using the pen tool to create shapes with intersecting paths and then using the shapebuilder tool probably not the best method in this case.
