I love textures

This class was very helpful. Jenn is straight to the point, explains everything simply, and has lots of useful tips for using Illustrator! I highly recommend taking this class.
This class is really worth taking. You will pick up extremely practical tips for creating letters - a method that can form the basis of constructing an entire lowercase alphabet. Jenn also includes a great tip for extracting a color palette from reference artwork. Her teaching style is friendly and and encouraging.
