    Re: Radio killed the radio star

    You're right! That's going to be my new maxim. He might have changed the course of my whole life!

    It wasn't just Trev though who had harsh words of wisdom. The other judge, Chas Jankel (Ian Dury...

    Re: Radio killed the radio star

    I met Trevor Horn when I was in a schoolboy band competition (electric bass). He told me I needed to learn how to tune my guitar properly! :o

    Thanks HD - a member I shall be. You never know! Windows 11 does look good. :-)

    Here’s a WIP that's on the drawing board at the moment. It's a Robert Hooke 'flea' inspired drawing and texture...

    Jono's life sans Xara

    Here's a montage of few bits and pieces I've made during the last few weeks. As TalkGraphics is my spiritual home and as an incentive to myself, every now and then I'll try and post a summary of what...

    Excellent. I've not used the pencil yet! In fact I've not really used any of the tools in earnest. I've got a personal project in the pipeline where ArtRage is going to get a good bashing using ink...

    Hi Bob (iamtheblues)

    I’ve actually not come across any show stoppers but have had a few minor disappointments. These aren’t necessarily Apple issues, but more about me expecting better. Things...

    Thanks Larry and all.

    @Handrawn, re: Mac mini - yes (and no!) If I were totally honest with myself I probably should have stuck with Windows!!!

    Just a quick flyby to post a scribble. Inspired after a recent visit to a zoology museum and being amazed by creatures of the deep.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish!

    Hi all

    As some here may know I have recently moved across to the Mac OS environment. It’s early days but so far so good - super fast and smooth operation, slick interface, etc. It’s not been...

    Very nice Egg. Loads of possibilities. Just add imagination!

    Re: Tessellating patterns

    I rarely print things out nowadays but thanks for the idea. Being based on vectors it should scale up ok.

    Thanks both.

    @gwp Yes, lucky I was looking. I would have been devastated.

    “Yeah, I was a tadpole too once”

    The common frog (Rana temporaria).

    Always been fascinated by frogs and amphibious animals. This one hopped out when I was mowing the lawn. Quite beefy front legs, probably been down the gym. ;)

    Re: more pareidolia

    I’m not sure if it’s photoshopped or not, but it’s a great shot. I guess if you take enough photos of anything like clouds or waves you’re bound to see something eventually if you’re looking.

    What do you want to draw? Do you mean straw, as in the agricultural byproduct consisting of the dry stalks of cereal plants after the grain and chaff have been removed? If so, the construction of the...

    Yes, you've rumbled me trying to look cleaver with help from Google! Just searched 'gibbus' and wish I hadn't. :(
