About This Class


In this class, I'm going to show you multiple ways you can re-draw your lettering using Adobe Illustrator. I'm going to show you how I use basic shapes, pathfinder, and the pen tool to transform my sketches into a crisp, scalable vector file. I can't wait to see what you create!

I'm totally in awe of the pen tool control... Very good class, super clear and helpful - much better control of the vectorizing than using Image Trace, but a whole lot slower...!
Ilana takes something that can be very complicated and helps make it so easy! I will recommend this class to everyone I know! It was short, sweet, and super informative.
The tips for lettering using the pen tool and shapes were a great refresher! It was nice to see an example of the different types of lettering in one project as well.
