Using Illustrator to print money; more
Illustrator mensch Mordy Golding reports an interesting interaction at a recent show:
After my tutorial this week, one of the attendees approached me, telling me how much he enjoyed the session. Then he told me he’d like to present me with a gift — a quarter. No, he wasn’t trying to bribe me to lobby the Illustrator team for multiple pages. But it was a special quarter indeed, because he designed it.
Check out Mordy’s post for more info & images.
