A long, simple compact fluorescent lamp composed of one u-turn shaped white tube. The energy saving light bulb has a green recycling sign on the white plastic where the electronic ballast resides. The eco-friendly household item is featured against a green seamless background pattern made from the repeating image of a maple leaf.
This is a rework of a previous illustration which had a more complicated structure, employing mostly basic visual effects of a considerable number of shapes. For this version, i went in a completely different direction in order to achieve a much more simple solution with just a handful of paths. Most of the lighting is done by superimposing stacks of fill layers, either solid or gradient (both linear and radial). The background symbol was created from a photo taken a couple of years ago, which i traced and then managed to reduce the number of anchor points.
