Is anyone here good at it?

I have an idea for one, but I'm not that great at it, and would really like to learn how, or work with someone else on this piece.

Any suggestions are welcome.

I too have been trying to design a celtic knot, but with a twist (no pun intended.) The recipiant wants certain numbers entwined in the knot, so it's hard enough creating one, but then to put certain thing in it. I'm going crazy.

My only suggestion would be to get some graph paper, then do a google search on "drawing celtic knots." You'll get some good info.

I used to do a lot of weird design stuff (not celtic knotwork...more like tribal Escheristic stuff, but a lot of the same design principles).

Illustrator is the main program for this type of stuff.
