Dear Veerle,

Can you tell us where you find/buy your fonts? Is it on the net?

I loved this one and the one you used for the
“Using the Blend tool and Distort Zig Zag Effect in Illustrator” tutorial.

Thanks!!!

The font is called Mohair, but I couldn’t find any link on the web to buy this font, sorry :-\ It came on an old CD collection of fonts I bought years ago (pre internet date). The other font you are referring to is one of my own creation. At this moment it’s still in Illustrator format. It’s my very first own font. It’s part of a fun project called Grab Bag Book (as far as I know not published yet). I still have to convert it to an actual font format like TrueType, or even better OpenType. Something I haven’t done before either.

Dear Veerle,

maybe you have told us before, but can you tell us an easy way to create the ‘sun-rays’ in the background?

Yes I did indeed ;) I explained this in my article about Transform Again on Shape Layers in Photoshop. In this article I show you how to apply different colors for each part of the ray.
