Hi!

I am recreating a poster from the 70's for an artist. I am having trouble creating the font, I need to know how to make the letters all individual and smooth and straighten the edges, mine are all wobbly and blurry.... it needs to be a vector also.... any one have some information to help me TOTALLY new to all of this.

Am I right in thinking the image you've shared is one you've traced by hand? If so, I'm guessing you're using too many anchor points. One of the keys to getting smooth vector designs is often the number of anchor points. To help you get a better idea about how the Pen tool works, you can check out this game:

I have a feeling it will help you get better at making smooth vector designs!
