    Default loco lettering

    I have this logo design I'm doing for an old friend. I thought I would show you all my process.

    Here's the pencil sketch


    I'll take this into Illustrator and retrace it

    I opened the picture in Illustrator and went to layers and made it a template. then made a new layer and began tracing it with the pen tool

    I use to trace on the same layer never knowing about the template layer.
    It helps keeping them seperate layers. The advantage for me is I trace with the pen tool layer in outlines (Ctrl Y) then the image I'm tracing is a ghost layer.
