The musical genius who left us way too soon.

I wonder if he's making more beats in heaven, lol.

this looks perfect! Very nice.

Would you like to reply on those questions please:
- What kind of vector is this,
- and what kind of tools did you use.

I would appreciate that very much!

референс где-то у меня лежит в документах, там обложка журнала в 400 пикселей шириной. найду - отпишусь.
