    This is a class that is more centered on illustrator drawing techniques in general rather than specific icon drawing techniques. I was hoping to learn a lot more on using the grid, setting up the artboards, consistency techniques, saving for different formats and sizes, corners/ angles/strokes, and different styles of icons.

    I learned some nifty techniques! For example, how to easily change sharp corners to round ones, and how to subtract simple shapes from each other and use them as building blocks to create icons.
