    Thanks for sharing this tutorial – however I must tell you that I get stuck at 'cropping' using pathfinder and had to use other means to make the unwanted part of image disappear and also the section making the semi-sphere on the same layer as the seven bars, it just doesn't work for me. I am using Ai CS5 but MAP ART just would not work. I have re-read and re-read your tutorial trying to find out what I am missing but to no avail. Its not a reflection of you, I think just some things in Ai CS5 are just not as simple as we think. I shall keep tyring.

    Thanks again, appreciate the sharing and help.
