By Deke McClelland, tutorial on how to amazingly transform two simple circles in Illustrator into a swirling colourful flowering vector effect. This is really excellent - shows just how powerful the Appearance Panel is, as well the some Effects like the Effect: Distort & Transform: Transform with it's dialogue box. Also the Effect: Stylise: Outer Glow. Great examples of use of gradients, and also applying multiple fills via the Appearance Panel, with effects applied to different fills.
