Playing around with a quicker style for the local AIDS Walk events. I used a bit of technique taught to me by @Michael George Haddad to get the rough edge on the lines.

Was the technique through the diffuse filter? I'd like to learn a few more ways to do that :)

@Alicia Hugo I pulled the vector in to PS. Did a Gaussian blur, dissolved edge, unsharp mask. It gave it that grey try edge. I'm definitely going to incorporate this elsewhere.
This is what i've been doing: http://www.pixelpixelpixel.com/2012/02/textured-icon-tutorial-in-illustrator/
Tutorial is a little drawn out with distractions in it haha
I'll have to try your way.
@Alicia Hugo Yes. That seems pretty close to the end results I achieved. Maybe even a few less steps. Only thing I did differently is that I brought it in to PS at 1000 dpi and down converted to 300 dpi for the final. So it wasn't vector at the end. I have a love/hate relationship with autotrace. I'm far too OCD and end up spending more time cleaning up the points after autotracing. Plus, if its gonna look non-vector, I just go with Photoshop. But that's just me! And only when I feel like it. heh...
Yea, when I have taken it back into illustrator I haven't had much luck. I usually just keep it in photoshop. If it's just lines it does fine in illustrator but any more detail and it starts looking pretty wonky.
Thanks for showing me another way! :)
