    Well, can't believe I'm doing this, but I'm asking for help finding some "clipart". I have a customer who wants a pinstripe style, loooong lightning about 13' long and 8" tall down the side of his truck.

    He brought in a VERY low rez picture of something he found that he likes... a long arc with sparks coming off of the sides. 2 colors. I'm sure I can find one I can just tile and repeat over and over, but I've been to Aurora, Freds site, and Istock.... no good matches.

    Anyone have any ideas? What he brought in is attached.

    Probably what I'm going to do. I'm pretty rusty in PS right now though so it's probably going to take me a good bit longer. :( I rarely touch photoshop anymore but I simply can't find anything else that looks right.

    That's not pinstripe, that's airbrush.
    I can't do it with an airbrush or with a computer for that matter.
    Love....Jill

    pinstripe as in long and skinny, sorry. I just meant I need to link it into a long "pinstripe" stripe.

    I'll be digitally printing it. Kind of a hokey job, but it's a job. :)
