About This Class

This skillshare class is designed to give students an introduction to the world of traditional sign painting.

I've been working as a freelance illustrator and designer for 7 years now, and in the last 3 years have come to focus heavilly on hand lettering and sign painting. In this class i'll share with you my process to design and create your own simple hand painted sign.
