    Default Enough!

    Darn! due to Wordpress trouble I didn't get this one finished for this weeks Illustration Friday (topic was 'Enough')!
    Short trivia about this image:
    It was the same coloring technique as mentioned in another posts: scanned sketch with contrast adjustment made with levels, then transparency set to stained glass. On another layer I made color shapes with about 2.5 - 3 px feathering so I didn't have to be too exact with the coloring blocks.
    The new stuff: I copied some text lines from messages in my spam mailbox and pasted the text in xara. I converted the text pieces to shapes which made the text into grouped objects. I selected the objects and made a "SPAM brush". Then it was easy to add the spam text in my image.

    Paul we were down anyway! I have the same problem with wordpress and everyone states it's the easiest, didn't have that problem with Joomla. By the way the drawing is great as well.

    That's a good one Paul. Just don't be selling that spam brush or it could catch on.

    Albacore - The wordpress trouble was my own fault... I upgraded WP before I checked how well it would work with the current theme - well it didn't ...but after I found and installed a fix for the theme it now do

    Gray - and I thought I could make money on my spam brush, making life so much easier for all the spammers out there

    I feel your frustration, Paul.

    I've been getting about a dozen Hallmark e-cards recently. All with virus infected attachments. Fortunately my ISP removes the virus infected images first.

    And of course those incredibly trusting and generous Nigerians. How could I live so well if not for their generous contributions to my bank account. And they don't even know my name!!!

    Great Gnurf Paul.
    good subject matter as I think a lot of us get the floods of Spam. Mostly I get it to my web site email address , but my host has Spam assasin installed on the server which makew it pretty easy to weed out all of the spam.
