Playing with Vector Art

Some recent art I completed in Adobe Illustrator.
The cup of coffee was completely done using a 
digital drawing tablet. 
I was going for a sketchy painting effect without using 
any special Illustrator effects or special brushes. 

 I only had to draw half of the pelican! 
Then copy and reflect bird to the opposite side.
The smoking cigarette has many different effect used to accomplish this illustration. Some 3-D effect, Some Bristle Brush effect, the Swirl tool, vectorized photo of wood grain, plus more!
