great class!

Drawing is such a stress relief!

While a big part of the class was done in Illustrator using its special vector tools (I had the impression that the class would've been performed entirely in Photoshop), it still was a great class! :)

This is a great class to see his process and learn a few of his secrets of how he achieves his vintage textures. Always fun to see how another artist works, sketches. Thanks for sharing your talent and process with us Adam!
