About This Class

Picking up where we left off in class 1, we'll jump right into learning about variable stroke weight letterforms and serifs. Follow along with me to learn the correct way to construct these letterforms. I'll also show you a few ways to find inspiration for your lettering and illustration, and we'll discuss the how and why of keeping a sketchbook. Finally, I'll show you how I finish my illustrations by hand as we work on a postcard project together.

Very interesting and methodical tutorial on the hand drawing basic letters with inspiring ideas of how to present work and finish it off. It is definitely a course I will definitely re-watch.

HI! I'm an artist, designer and illustrator, born and raised in Colorado (USA). My days are filled with designing and art directing for a university, my nights are filled with drawing and illustrating projects that make me happy.

Love to hike, kayak, camp and garden when I'm not slaving away at the drawing table.
