  1. that was literally the first project i had ever done.....prolly about 8 years ago.....i got into & learned PS while doing that project.... it was rereleased lrecently & i did the cover for the re-release....if i can find the new cover i will post it... orange.....
  2. a bunch of old ass album covers/inserts/cd's..... havent done an album ina while..... been doin a bunch of twitter backgrounds, logos, & most recently a shit ton of tee shirt designs with some serious financial backing..... will post the designs when they are ready to release em....

  10. i know adobe page makr does...... but its been almost a decade since they released a new version....
  11. create/outline a shape in AI or PS and with the shape selected use "paste into" (obviously copying your text from another source/layer first)......... text will fill in your shape........ im rusty as hell b/c i havent used a lot of text in any designs for quite a while, but im pretty sure im right or close to it....... too lazy/busy to test my theory at the moment.....
