About This Class

In this class, I share with you my technique for creating Condensed Interlocking Letterforms. I walk you through my process from sketching, planning, executing, and refining. The beginning/sketching portion of the class can be done with marker and paper, but the majority of the class is taught within Adobe Photoshop. 

I designed my project using only a computer mouse just to prove it can be done! But if you have a digital tablet, the project will be even easier.
