Adsvert.com is a beautifully designed web interface. It sports a novel 3D menu system that [for once] is a pleasure to drive. There are a number of applications you can download and some online graphics engines that are capable of rendering instant composites of blueprints, insects or urban aligned image banks.
Here is a sample I whipped up from the blueprints generator. There doesn’t seem to be a save function so just hit printscreen and paste into your graphics program to crop. click here for linkage
Through the Tribe.net network I caught a link to an upcoming gallery exhibition of a talented local mixed media artist. His works attempt [and succeed] to capture the true nature of people and their manifestations of the infinite possibilities that surround them.
I think I will try head along to his exhibition that opens next weekend at a local eatery come yoga place, Radha, on Main St (Vancouver). Opening night on Friday includes live downtempo music from a number of people at one of the best [apparently] veggie restaurants in the city. Sounds like it is worth a look for sure, and it is high time I started meeting some of Vancouver’s switched on crowd.

I Stumbled upon this really good tutorial on how to make your own Warhol’esque portraits, similar to the Blur album cover if you know it. The process is relatively simple if you know your way around photoshop basics. You’ll need to familiarise yourself with the pen tool, but that is about all the skills you’ll need.

Well the article on Dusso seemed pretty popular so here is a link to another of the big matte artists, Mathieu Raynault. His works have been used in Kong, LOTR, Day afterTomorrow. You get the idea.

Well I have just finished a new header design. It is a composite of photos from my time in Canada so far, mostly from Vancouver. Really enjoying playing about in Photoshop even though I know I am still only touching the surface.
Not sure if I should be blending more into the text or what. Any suggestions?
Update: Have made some changes to incorporate the text into the picture. Pretty happy with the result – looks better I think than the previous design.
