Hey there. All your files are locked somehow. Ive tried running them through illustrator cs6 multiple ways, as well Every link to files except the first one are either just pictures in another browser window or not shared publicly???.

@paulmunger Thanks for pointing that out! We fixed the sharing settings and files are now unlocked. If you want to download the SVG files you can right click on the link and choose “download file”, then they should open in illustrator. Thanks! MNML

I like this project but the black file and the download zip file are having issues. The black easel file says it is not public and the zip file is not found. Just FYI.

This project looks great! But the black file says it hasn't been made public. Is it possible to get that last file released?
