After this assignment, you will have the choice of either creating your designs the traditional way with pencils/paper/markers or completing them digitally for the rest of the assignments this year.
Assignment # 1:

Reference the beginning steps of the tutorial on how to use the pencil tool in Adobe Illustrator.
