I drew this in illustrator by hand (Please see attached image). The Zig Zag feature in illustrator is linear.
is there a way to taper it or warp it in/outwards?

Thanks

Hi Max,

(In Illustrator) with path selected, Object>Envelope Distort>Make with Mesh, set columns and rows to 1. This will give you a single-square distortion area with bezier handles that you can use to warp it in or out.

Interesting! It was close, but no cigar. Had to modify the end path a little, this way takes me about the same amount of time to draw it manually. :/
