    WIll, I've watched a few videos that talk about using pathfinder and "minus front." I'm not sure what the problem is, but it doesn't seem to work. I follow your instruction and once I hit minus front, it may only happen to one part of the object (though they are united together as one) or with this video, my font wasn't a cursive/connected font and so all the letters disappeared but one. I promise I tried it maybe five times. I'm probably just missing something.

    Hey! I appreciate your sharing of this lesson, it has helped me gain an important technique. Very cool!
    I have a problem, can anyone assist please? I have done a couple of these through Distort> bulge effect (I'm leaving the values on 0 as advised) but suddenly this is not producing the grid/envelope I can manipulate, you know, by dragging the anchor points or handles in the "mask" or whatever it is called. I have the effect listed in Appearance panel however, and obviously I can input values there but that's it! And ctrl+h will not show the anchors in a new envelope. Please help! thanks!

    Dear Will, your video is awesome, thank you so much! Just a question…how did you apply the chalkboard effect on the lamp image? I've tried everything in photoshop and my brushes just won't do 🙁 could you kindly help me?

    You don't have the font like in your description – you just have a link to your Creative Market page..

    hi will ,,im using cs5 im having a problem about clicking the bulge effect to 0 bend, i cant find the mesh on my text.

    Why does he "expand->compound path->minus front" why doesnt he just leave the white? I'm also unsure what compound path does, why does he need to do that?

    I've done a couple of these in Illustrator, as well! But I was wondering…can you do the text wrap in an object with Photoshop too? If so, what is it called?

    Thank you so much for your videos.  I just got a subscription to the Adobe creative cloud and your videos have helped me so much when learning how to use illustrator.  The past few weeks when I haven't known how to do something the first place I've gone to is your channel.  Can't wait to see more and more of your tutorials.   🙂

    How did you get the text to have the bounding box after you wrote it?

  23. Yanna Zee Avatar

    Can you make a video about the graphic design basics.  If you're first starting out, what are some things you should learn?  Maybe even some faux assignments? Thanks for the great vids!
