  3. An Adobe Illustrator (CS4) screencast tutorial including these steps:
    1. Draw 2 squares: 1 black and 1 white
    2. Turn them into a Symbol
    3. Apply Transform effect to repeat them horizontally
    4. Apply Transform effect to repeat the line of squares vertically
    5. Expand everything and move squares to make 1 perfect rectangle
    6. Skew and resize the checkerboard (to match the Bavarian flag)

  4. To flow text into a shape you use the Area Type tool, but this doesn't work for compound shapes. In this screencast I show you a workaround to this problem with the example of a compound heart shape.
