About This Class

Join lettering artist Kelly Thorn to design a monogram marrying the tactile, imperfect look of handiwork with the polish and refinement of a digital illustration!

Perfect for graphic designers, lettering artists, and type enthusiasts, this 45-minute class shares how to seamlessly combine hand-done elements with vector drawings.

From researching and sketching, to painting by hand, to refining her work in Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop, Kelly shares her own full process so that you can design a beautiful acronym or monogram word of your own.

Note: For this class, students should have a basic understanding of both Illustrator and Photoshop — and be interested in developing their by-hand skills!
