Here’s the original (made in photoshop), but it’s way too pixelated so I’m re making it in illustrator.

However, I’m having a very difficult time re-making the vortex. I’ve tried using the Ellipse tool and stack circles and then cutting them but it’s not working at all. The circles look all weird and distorted. Any help here would be great!

**Answer**

This is something that would be easy to graph with a parametric equation. You can find a parametric equation plotter I made for illustrator here:

I quickly tested with following parameters:

```
Function:
X: 2.2*(t+3*PI) * sin(t) + 300
Y: 1*(t+3*PI)* cos(t) - 200 + 6/4*PI*t
Range:
Min: 3*PI/4+0.5
Max: PI*6+2*PI/4
Step: PI/8 (or PI/4)
```

**Image 1**: Graphing of a suitable parametric equation yields.

You may want to adjust the numeric values of the equation a bit to suit your needs. This is quickly done after all.

For finishing touches. Use the cut tool to cut the shape up and delete segments at overlapping joins.

**Image 2**: After twaking a bit more Result after making raise a bit bigger (the term 6/4*PI*t).
