About This Class


This course is a follow up to my other vector course entitled "Learn To Make Vector Art For Hand Lettering (Adobe Illustrator Pen Tool)". In this course, I am offering a second option for creating vector art in illustrator, for hand letterers. You will learn how to make vector art using the Auto Trace technique in Illustrator CC. This technique is a time effective skill that all hand letterers should know so they can make vector art in a short amount of time. 

Although the Image Trace skill in Illustrator sounds completely automatic, I will show you how to tweak the tools so that you are still in control of your artwork's final look. This skill is perfect for hand letterers who want to work with clients on logos, t-shirt art, banners, posters, skateboards, stickers, signage... you get the idea:)

I hope you enjoy this course and feel free to ask questions!

ps, I would love a great review, so please let me know if you enjoyed the course:)
