Digitizing Handlettering Webinar with Liz Cooke
For some of you, your unique gift is handlettering, art, illustration, doodling, or drawing. Hand-lettering is beloved for its effortless style, but to maintain that ease in the computer can be tricky and unbalanced pieces result in fewer sales. Learn to make lettering that people LOVE.
You don’t have to be a perfect calligrapher to create awesome things with your penmanship. This is a wonderful way to create something so unique to you and your brand that copy cats have a really hard time calling it their own.
Liz Cooke of Lionheart Prints did an impromptu lesson on digitizing handlettering a the Winter 2015 Session of Stationery Academy. Many of us are still confused at how to make live trace and the pen tool do their best work for us. It takes some time to get used to and there are some best practices to make it look effortless. Our attendees loved it. And many of them are going to start implementing it into their new products so they can develop more unique product lines.
On Thursday, April 16th at 11 A.M. CST, Liz will be teaching you how to take your hand-drawn letters and prepare them for production. In this webinar, you will learn:
- how to create lettering from scratch that translates well to the computer
- the five strategies of building your lettering in illustrator
- how to create print-ready vector files of your artwork
- including how-tos for both raster and vector files
- and techniques for watercolor and hand drawn illustrations
