Project Description

Illustrate the first letter of your name, or your favorite letter!

By combining illustration and lettering, we can build upon the already expressive nature of the written word. If a picture paints a thousand words, a picture of a word is even more expressive! So, In this class, I will teach my process for illustrating a letter from concept to completion. The final deliverable will be either an illustration of the first letter of your name, or your favorite letter. Make sure to upload your process along the way so we can offer feedback and help you create an amazing piece of artwork!
