Use the pen tool for the person and the type tool for the text.
Hi Scott, I have the logo in a EPS file and transparent PNG, but it is not the best quality. The logo in the video is an example of how bad it looks when I try to trace it. Do I still use the type tool when in Illsustrator?
You could simply re-draw it? I mean, two swooshes and a sphere-y head? RLY? My mom could do it in PowerPoint! And simply find the font for the text. Can't be that difficult, considering that it looks like a standard system font to begin with.
