    Looks like a pretzel, in my opinion, if you turn it around a bit; but still very nice. Great tutorial!

    Bummer that the rounding of the rectangle trick is only available in Illustrator versions CC and above! 🙁
    I think those of us without the CC version would have to achieve this by creating a separate rectangle and a circle, then arranging them in line and cutting away the extra vectors using the Scissors Tool.

    Do you think it matters which letter(s) read first? Sometimes I make monograms and they end up reading backwards or maybe I'm thinking too much into it.

    Sorry for this question but i need to know how…
    I have illustrator CC and i need to know how curve the angles on a path (like at the start of this video when he do the C from a rectangle).
    My problem is that i don't know how to do it istantanely like in the video, because i don't have the drag-points for curving the angles of a path, and i don't find how to makes them appear ……

    The part where you transform the corners into a curve right around the 1:00 mark, was there an extra key stroke you did in there or did you just click and drag? I'm not sure it's available in my version of illustrator.

    I'm a Windows Adobe CC user, but still loved this video.I really like the way you go through these functions and techniques I never would have otherwise used. I actually practiced the pen tools after the last video and was amazed how much more proficiency your tutorial added. This one's the same. tons of good hints here. Thank you.

    This was really informative. Do you have any tips on creating Monograms with a "K" in it? I always have a difficult time creating a hand lettered "K"
