So I recently learned how to kinda use the vector layer.

You might have noticed the lettering changed a little.

The old way I wrote it out using the marker tool at .7mm and the resize made it look ok, but I find now using the vector layer, the lettering stays pretty clear. It doesn't look the same as it did before, but it is more legible.

Also some cool things that make life easier is using the erase too in vectors. It erases the line instead of part of the line. There's also a trick where if it's intersecting two lines, you can delete the excess lines. Very convenient.

And yes I know I could just use fonts and the word balloon tool, but I actually don't like using those tools. It makes me feel disconnected and it bothers me I can't control them the way I like. It just seems easier to just do it the old fashioned way: by hand.

Moving forward I'll be using vectors to letter FIGHT's pages.
