Art is Life - student project

I am super new to Illustrator so this was quite a challenge!  I had a lot of fun with this though.  Jamie you made is simple and easy.  I started with this sketch.

Then I started using the pen tool to get as close as I could to this free hand text, using the ruler and the guides I set up.

Here is the screen shot of my anchors.  So a bit wonky but I will continue to practice!!!

Then I cleaned up the lettering as much as possible... for me.  I also increased the stoke thickness and added curves to the ends of the lettering.

As a finishing touch, I changed the color and adjusted the distance between letters/words.  Loved this project!!!!  ; )
