scientific illustrations for professional academic
journals, and also stained glass and stepping stone
mosaic patterns -- all with CorelDRAW. Most
of the patterns I turn into vector offerings
begin as sketches on scraps of paper, or magazine
images or ideas that appear from nowhere, it seems.
Sometimes I scan these in as JPGs, and import them
into CorelDRAW, and then use the bezier tool to
create outlines. In the case of stained glass, if
there is an object (glass piece) which I want to be
a specific color, then that piece actually has to
become a closed object. But if it is a glass piece
which will be part of the background, then the
different glass pieces can be delineated by lines.
The vast majority of the pieces in my stained glass
patterns are however closed, because I like
the look of the product better when the glass
fill has direction and texture, and that is best
done by having each glass piece actually be a closed

company is called AmiGraphics. It was set up as my
freelance entity. I am primarily a graphic designer,
but I have experience in marketing and management as
well. Although I use a number of applications to
produce the designs, CorelDraw X3 is my primary

PowerClip and Drop Shadow.
It's one part of a multi-part campaign including
posters, brochure, postcard and PowerPoint slide.
Having spent years using
CorelDRAW® in my day job as a security hologram
designer, I have been increasingly impressed with
the software’s capability. The designs appear on
security holograms for brand protection on alcohol,
clothing, videos & DVDs, engine parts,
pharmaceuticals and even beauty products! At the
higher end, I've used CorelDRAW to design holograms
and holographic overlays for banknotes,
International Passport bio-data and visas too.
However, after five years of eyestrain fitting 2- 30
micron high security nano-print around complex
paths, I decided it was time to try something new. I
have a great affection with Art Nouveau and the Arts
& Crafts Movement and thought it might be fun to
're-master' some period designs for decorative
stencils and prints.

Vinnie is a native New Yorker who has been drawing
since pre-school. In his teen years he kept at it
and became quite good. He started drawing his
friends’ cars on cardboard and they loved it. In
the ‘60s he became a talented pin-striper; and
attended The School of Visual Arts in New York.
That got him into the slick ‘stylized’ look that his
pieces reflect today.
In the mid ‘80s he bought his first computer (an
Apple II Mac) and taught himself to illustrate with
the tools these “magic boxes” had, and the “digital”
bug bit him. Today he works out of his sunny
Southern California digital studio creating some
killer art. He
says, “The name "LeBrush" is what I used way back
when I was a popular Pin-striper in New York;
instead of The Brush, I made it French, Le-Brush."

Here is a link to my work:
Ramil B. Baylon is a professional Graphic Design
Artist from Iloilo City, Philippines. I finished my
Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications in 1997 from
University of Iloilo. I started working with the
print media in the same year. I am now the Art
Director for the Visayan Daily HEADLINES.
Along the way, I had some part time work with an
advertising firm called SignWrite Advertising. We
did graphic designs for sports cars and motorcycles
and other outdoor ads. We used a printer-plotter to
cut the stickers. I also had a stint working in a
card company, which is where my skills in CorelDraw
jumpstarted. I designed hundreds of logos for
corporations and schools.
