I’m not sure how many of you know this but one of my day jobs is working as a college professor. This semester one of my new classes is cartooning and our first class is on Friday.

One of the first things I’m going to do with them is teach them how to do basic in lettering Adobe Illustrator. To help prep for my lecture I created a lettering tutorial, which got posted at MakingComics.com. If you’ve ever wanted to know the very basics of lettering you might want to check it out (there is even a video!).
