I clicked yes though my patience was really put to the test with the massive amounts of "ummmmms" and pauses between words and sentences. However I do realize that it's hard to speak in a non-native language - all the same a wee bit more practice before would have avoided all my teeth-grinding. That having been said, it was fun to see the progress of the work and the quality of the final piece is beautiful. If you are patient and not in a hurry, by all means dive right in.
Martina's work is impeccable and a very inspiring designer to follow!
I always thought that the key to good vector lettering was being a perfect hand/brush letterer. Martina shows how, just like the illustration process, it takes many iterations and sketches over sketches to get the perfect custom script lettering. This is a very informative class, and I would highly recommend it.
