    I built one for you but it's over the size limit. Got an email?

    It is quite easy. Pull out some guides that you will use as a center point for all the shapes. Then use ellipse and rectangular shape tools combined with pathfinder to create this. :D

    BTW: You can open this pdf in illustrator.

    easiest way -

    Easiest way to recreate that exact shape in illustrator is to:

    open in Photoshop
    select Magic Wand tool
    Click MW tool on *blank* area
    select key combo: apple+shift+i
    then under menu: file>export>all paths to illustrator

    Nice & Easy. Once in Illustrator, you have the option to stroke & fill as you prefer.:cool:

    I already sent it to him at his email address- and then suggested he delete his email address from this page... but I guess he's not worried about it.

    User 23- that method would work fine except the file was so low rez you can't get a clean selection from it. Creating it in Illustrator takes about 30 seconds.
