One of the great things about working with vector artwork is that it's very easy to distort that artwork when needed. For example, there is a feature inside of Illustrator called enveloping. Basically, it allows you to take artwork and compress it into another shape. This can be very useful and more importantly it's non-destructive. So you can easily make edits later on. There are other ways to also apply distortions inside of Illustrator using something called warping and even a whole bunch of fun to use tools called Liquify. Well, let's go ahead and take a look.
