On Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you!), the Adobe Photoshop Facebook crew featured one of my latest 3D videos. This generated a ton of new subscribers and views on my YouTube page. There are three videos total on this particular project. I had to split things up due to time limits on…Details
I found this tip from a Sitepoint newsletter, describing a nifty CSS trick: if you layer up background elements in your style sheet, you can generate what appears to be non-repeating backgrounds for your website. The site describes the process in detail, but in summary you simply create different sized seamless tiles, then let them…Details
Austin Kleon has this project website called ‘Newspaper Blackout‘. It’s all about taking things away from a presentation to create something new. “Creativity is Subtraction” goes one of the representative, and self-referential, works.

They are all over the place, and quality of presentation and material varies widely. While I’ve found some amazing resources this way, I’m looking to simplify my searches. One way I did this was to start…Details
Holiday and travel shots are always in danger of falling into the same old, uninteresting patterns time and again. And it can be amazingly difficult to do something fresh. Heck, it gets tiring putting so much effort into each and every shot. So here’s a big secret for you: decide beforehand what you want from…Details
On my Facebook page I’ve posted instructions on how you can get one of the two books listed in the previous blog entry. Since FB has limits on text, I wanted to add some info here. First, I can only afford to ship within the Continental US. Second, you do not have to sign up…Details
Due to life being OBE (overtaken by events, not, as some of you think out of bodice experience), I managed to miss the drawing for November’s prize: The Filmmaker’s Eye: Learning (and Breaking) the Rules of Cinematic Composition.
