Life Long Learning Is Cool

A good but basic series of tutorials for music poster design in a number of genres. Some could use a bit more in the design department, but the techniques should work still. Many are shown at far too low a resolution for posters, so consider using a higher res than some of those shown. For large posters, I would suggest 260-300 ppi. Don't need as high a resolution as for a magazine.
