Each day this week, pick a simple product with large, easy-to-see text on its surface. Sketch the product quickly in 2-point or 3-point perspective. Then add the surface text.
As you sketch, observe how the surface changes the text. Edges that are straight and parallel when you view them straight-on will look different in perspective.
