This class pulls together 20 fun tips for using Illustrator. Episodes are between 7-15 minutes long. It originally was sold for $2.99 per episode. I have condensed it into a self-paced class with all 20 episodes for $1 per episode. It includes some of my favorite tricks and tools in Illustrator. Some of these things are touched on in other classes, but as a whole, these are not tricks I teach elsewhere. I hope you enjoy!
