807 Drawing a 24-sided star in negative space

807 Drawing a 24-sided star in negative space: Deke's Techniques
807 Drawing a 24-sided star in negative space: Deke's Techniques

While getting dry suit certified in San Diego, Deke came across a pattern on a chair that intrigued him. (Deke has what he readily admits to be a “pattern problem.”) It featured a 24-sided star surrounded by two angles of a 12-sided void. He explored the idea in Illustrator to figure out how it works, and turns out, the trick is to draw just five anchor points with the Pen tool. Repeat those points to create a void. And repeat the void to create a negative space that defines the star.
