Toast of all kinds and flavors. Just a bit of fun with making slices of bread and turning them into toast. Simple and versatile, you can make it fun with all different variations. Butter, extra toasty, stacked, with a fried egg or just super thick bread. Enjoy!
Create a rectangle.
Add an oval on top, centered on the box.
Use the Pathfinder Unite Mode to join the two shapes together.
Add some texture with a few circles to show the grain of the bread.
Add a square, fill with yellow, round the corners slightly.
Copy the bread shape. Choose Object>Path>offset Path. Create a second path inside by setting the offset to a negative number.
With the new Offset path, remove the stroke.
Create lines for a toasty look. Make them darker than the bread. Group all the lines together then CUT the lines. Edit>Cut.
Select the offset path. Choose the Draw Inside Mode at the bottom of the Tool Bar.
Paste the grouped lines into the shape. Click on the Draw Normal Mode at the bottom of the Tool Bar.
Add some butter just because you can.
Copy and paste a new slice of bread. Add a thicker stroke.
Draw a circle. Choose Effect>Distort & Transform> Roughen. Make smooth edges and not much distortion.
Here is the distorted circle, and the basis for your fried egg.
Put a yellow circle on top of the distorted circle, then all of it on top of the bread. It's a fried egg!
Create 4 circles, in a row with a slight curve to create a bite mark.
Choose the Pathfinder Unite mode to make them one unit.
Place the shape over the edge of the bread.
Choose the Pathfinder Minus Front mode to make them one unit.
Copy the bread slice again. Create a vertical line.
Duplicate the line to create a few vertical lines.
Select all the lines, choose Effect> Distort & Transform> Zig Zag. Create small, smooth waves.
Group the waves together.
Select the lines, choose Effect>Blur Gaussian Blur.
Blur them slightly to create toasty marks.
Copy the bread slice again. Use the Free Transform Tool to shift the bread into perspective.
To make the slice thick, select the bread, hold OPTION and click the UP ARROW key several times. This duplicates it each time you click the up arrow. Group all the pieces together.
Copy and stack the slices! Keep it toasty my friends.
