Here is how I do them:
ONE: scan in at the highest possible resolkution, like: 3000 sqr'd or higher. With the right camera equipment you can photo it if you keep it all squared up nicely.
TWO: use Abobe Illustrator (a vector drawing package). You import the image onto the bottom layer, of a multi layer drawing stack (kindof like tracing), you protect this layer so as to keep it from moving whileyou are drawingon it with the mouse.
THREE: redraft over the top, keeping each section of information (circles, letters, roses) n different layers tomake it easy to go back and tweek them into perfection.
FOUR, color is your friend now that its all broken down into layers, as you can mix and match including line widths, fonts and centering of things.
Here are a couple of examples: took about a complete night to draw it in and one more night after to tweek it. about 5 hrs total
Did this one for Bloomquist and JJ Naris' Sop-Tripes, took a little longer as there was repair work.
Send me your high rez image and I filp one out for you least I can do as you are a wealth of knowledge to us. [email protected]
PS: you can import these into frontpanel and order from them the blanks.
