Covered in this month's Workbook:

In the July Xara Xone: The July Xara Xtreme tutorial creates an elegant etched glass sign in what we are calling "A Touch of Glass". This tutorial has gotten a ton of positive e-mail response so I think we can say this is one of my best tutorials. Idil Sukan shows you some very creative uses for Xara's Freehand and Brush Tool in her excellent and imaginative Guest Tutorial. Ian Hamilton returns as the July Featured Artist. Since his 2000 debut as Featured Artist, Ian has earned a degree in Interactive Media and you can see many of his latest interface designs. Check it out. If you would like to be considered for a single or one of the upcoming group shows, e-mail me and let me know where I can see a few of your images.

Ken Wilson (Kman) has made available a set of his best Brushes in the Fills and Brushes section. There are lots of new links in the Links pages. 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.

A Word from Our Sponsor:

Xara makes several graphics products and all of them are fun and easy to use. And Xara makes this site possible so it would be nice if you just went to these pages and had a look see. Thanks.
