About This Class

In this Illustrator Basics course we'll be covering how to create shapes with two of my favorite tools in Illustrator: The Pen and Pencil tool. Whether your shapes are complex and controlled, or simple and free-form, the pen and pencil tool have you covered. Used in combination with various supporting tools like the direct selection tool, the anchor point tool, the smooth tool, and others, means no more frustration with trying to achieve the shapes you want. Say goodbye to wonky curves and novice looking illustrations!
