Real Typographers Cast their own type

I found this on

It's on the long side, but fascinating none the less.

This is how type was done in the age of the dinosaurs. Notice how at the end, the computer is edging its way in. Technology triumphs again!
It's not that much longer until Skynet will be setting type.

Which Presidential Candidate has better videogames?

McCain has an interesting section on his official website with a playable version of "Space Invaders"
The name is changed to "Pork Invaders" and you play as the McCain spaceship (campaign poster?) and get to shoot Vetoes at Piggy banks.


Obama has no such cool videogames.

This very well could be the deciding issue of the election.

5 Super Mega Cool photoshop tutorial sites

So, I haven't posted in a while . . . I've been distracted by the internet.
It's a pretty big place with lots of cool things.
Here are some of the sites I've been browsing lately.

All of these are great for inspiration and tutorials.

This site is awesome, it assumes that we're all stupid and don't know anything about Photohop, (which is true) so the step-by-step instructions are really clear.

2. abduzeedo:
Great designs, great ideas, and cool site layout.

3. tutorial9:
Most of the tutorials are pretty easy and fast but the results look great.
(so you have more time to be lazy)

4. Tutorial Blog:
The site layout is not as cool as the other ones, but the content is pretty good.

5. bitbox:
Sweet, sweet photoshop and illustrator hints and tips, free textures, brushes, and fonts.

Now go forth and waste more time on the world wide interweb!

the event. It should be a delightful musical and dance-a-cal evening.

Latest Work, Website Update

Three things . . . firstly, I updated my website. It looks more better now. It's over at
Secondly, an Illustration project of

Aesop's Fables

A HEIFER saw an Ox hard at work harnessed to a plow, and tormented him with reflections on his unhappy fate in being compelled to labor. Shortly afterwards, at the harvest festival, the owner released the Ox from his yoke, but bound the Heifer with cords and led him away to the altar to be slain in honor of the occasion. The Ox saw what was being done, and said with a smile to the Heifer: "For this you were allowed to live in idleness, because you were presently to be sacrificed."


Thirdly, I created an imaginary grunge rock band called GRUNGE OX. Support the fake band by downloading the below image.
