How to use:
  1. open the file with adobe illustrator (you will have an empty file, only with the 2 brush presets)
  2. start drawing your shapes. either curvy ones or just simple lines
  3. the shape selected click on the brush preset and voilà: candy cane :B
  4. use the second brush to apply different colors, just change the outline color of your shape and it's not red anymore
any questions? just ask :)

soooooo… i made another ai pattern brush. they are a pain to create but its totally worth the hard work :woohoo: and man, that was a tough job. cos i made both ends of the pattern, and you cant just mirror the one you made before… :lol:
anyway, i already used them in one of my artworks at =pica-ae for a xmas vector illustration.
but i think they are so awesome, that i wanted to share them with you all :D
you can use them for actual candy canes or for lollipops or any other swilry candy stuff :XD:
only thing that wont work are sharp corners. the corners need to be round.
ok, one of the brushes stays red, the other one takes the color of the shapes outline. try it out if you dont know what i mean :)
sooo, hope you like it :peace:

thanks to =brgtt for beta-testing the brush :D
