    The wife and I ahve been debating some of those solar lights. I may have to suggest this one to her. These look cool. Of course, I would worry about someone stealing them.

        That looks like fun to make too...I think I'll try to make one...if I have time, I mean.

        I have a store bought solar lamp, and it's really neat. But it came off of a bigger piece that cost $15, meant for a garden. The rest of it broke when the maintenance guys were rebuilding part of my apartment building, but I saved the shere with the solar light, and now it sits on the window sill (inside) and glows so nicely at night. But it looks so lonely. Some homemade friends would be great for it! Lol.

                    I'm thinking Christmas gifts for my sisters, sister-in-law, mom & stepmother. Six for each, two in each of 3 colors, X 5 sets, that's 30 of them. 36 if I make a set for myself.

                    Maybe I'll just do 4 each...

                      I was thinking one of each color

                      I'm not that ambitious. I have 10 adults to gift to

                        this would be interesting to build with Orangina bottles....but I don't know if the bottle would be the right size to accommodate a solar cell

                            Yeah, if I do 4 each, I'd do 4 different colors. Probably reddish, yellowish, greenish, blue-purpleish. Like a mini-rainbow.

                                It was just a logo that the designer modified the text by covering up bits here and there, super lazy as some designers tend to be. It would have taken forever to do it one by one. Ended up taking less...

                                Doing them one at a time using pathfinder to subtract (minus front) is probably safer so you can keep an eye on the stacking order.

                                In the pathfinder palette, open up...

                                Perfect! I knew it was something simple. I was trying to use the "Path" in the "Objects" menu instead of the pathfinder toolbox Duh LOL All I had to do was select everything and use...

                                You could try Select > Same > Fill Color to get all of the boxes, then convert them to a compound shape and use pathfinder to subtract. However depending on the way the document is made the best...

                                Truly, none of these feel complete. I'm also not sure if there is an intended superman reference, for me, it's definitely present in all of them....
