I am taking this class as part of the course: 'Master Illustrator In Just 30 Days!'
This was a great class to start the course with. I've always felt really intimidated by both Illustrator and by the pen tool! So I (finally) overcame those fears with the class!
I also loved the advice in Jon's commentary (thanks, Jon). I've watched short YouTube videos on this tool before and always felt skeptical about some of the advice and confused with the lack of explanation, but Jon's advice was reassuring and gave me confidence.
The pin is a great project idea. After a quick search on the internet I decided I liked these pins from Pete Cromer because they're quite original. Maybe for my final pin I'll do a native New Zealand bird.
