About This Class

In this class we will walk step-by-step through designing a simple 8 x 10 inspirational quote print in Adobe Illustrator. You can trace your own handwriting or use a font with proper licensing (if you plan to sell your finished product).

  • Begin with a sketch and a written quote.
  • Upload your sketch to Ai.
  • Trace your sketch and handwriting.
  • Create a beautiful art print!

We will use the blob brush tool, smooth tool, rectangles, horizontal or vertical reflection, and more!
