Designing a Graffiti Logo

Pre-Step: Fonts and PatternsBefore we begin were going to need to download a pattern and a font. The font we will be using is Rufa, and we'll be using a brick pattern for the background.

Step 2: Combining The Letters
Now we have to figure out a way to combine the 2 letters. In my case, I'm going to chop off the part where the L heads up words again, and replace it with the t. Rasterize both letters, and trim where you have to to make it work.
Rotate the letters if you have too and combine them. It's not going to fit perfect, but were going to fix that next.
Zoom in, create a new letter, and grab the pen tool. Fill in any gabs smoothly.
Merge all the text layers together once it looks right. Here's how mine looks.
Step 3: Blending Options

It should look like this now:
