Covered in this month's Workbook:

The December Xara X tutorial uses a series of brushes to create a festive holiday winter solstice wreath. Stephen Robinson shares his really simple but effective technique for creating Plastic Text in the December Guest Tutorial. The December Featured Artist Gallery is the annual Group Show this year featuring 24 Xara artists. If you would like to be considered a solo show, or one of the group shows, e-mail me and let me know where I can see a few of your images.

I am accepting your contributions (Tips, Brushes, Templates, stuff like that). I'm starting to run out of ideas and could use your input. If your site has Xara graphics and is not listed, send me your link and a brief description of how you have used Xara on your site.
