About This Class

Creating a hand-crafted poster/print can be very rewarding, but definitely a challenge. This class is designed to take this process step-by-step, walking through my personal habits when I'm creating a larger piece. We'll work through the early stages of sketching and planning all the way through inking and finishing up. 

(I used an instrumental version of "Light Speed" by Grieves in my video. He's awesome and you should check him out.)

Really enjoyed seeing your process. I'll look for your other classes, too! I'll try to post when I finish my assignment. Thank you! Joy Ps...I loved your Flight of the Concords shirt, too!
Great Class! I hope you post more!
Easy to follow demonstration. It gave a concise process that helped me confidently start lettering in my journal (although I haven't made a large piece yet!) I'd definitely watch more lessons from Joshua.
