Pen tool tutorials

Ever wonder how to create custom illustrations in Adobe Illustrator using the pen tool? I’ve just developed a 4-part series (don’t worry, they’re short!) of pen tool tutorials for my online class and thought I’d share them here. You can hear my dog barking in part two, but I think that’s a bonus! Be sure to watch them in order:

This was a fun project to work on. It’s nice when you get to create a logo with markers rather than just digitally! Also, I highly recommend My Computer Guy for any technical needs you may have.
