    Very cool! Thanks! Your tuts are always good.
    To the point, well concieved, respectful of your audiences time and always very useful. Currently you’re the guy who’s taught me the most about Illustrator CS4.

    I’ll fiddle about but in case I don’t discover the solution on my own – If I want to bring this into AE and animate it ….. How would I do that?

    Here is my solution – and I promise to fiddle about prior to posting a question in the future -I’m saving a document each time I make a change – Curious if anyone has a more elegant solution.

    Corey, this is great! However, when the tutorial in the initial small screen, it’s perfectly clear. Then when I put it on full screen, it gets fuzzy. Very hard to follow. This is true of the other tutorials I’ve done in this Layers Mag site. I know I’m missing stuff. Is there a way to clear it up?

    Great tutorial. Right after following along and messing around with it, I went out to the mailbox, and there was a small Oakley catalog that looks like it used this technique on the cover. I’m going to use it on my next photo book. Thanks!
