    Default Re: CFT bulbs contain mercury. But not Venus

    Thank you, Ron!

    Here is a photo I took of the house after getting the decorations out. Retouching in Photoshop; you can't taske a realy good night time picture with available light. Because there isn't any.

    Then Filter Forge for a little texturing.

    Thanks, Ron. I've always enjoyed the somewhat cliché but charming snow scenes around this time of year.It becomes that much more personal when it's your home in the picture, you know?

    By the way, the blue window top right is my drawing room. No idea why it's casting blue. He is the room the other way around.

    Default PinPress your friends!

    P R O L O G

    I worked with Paul Howard, another Art Director at Ted Bates back in 1976, Paul is the son of Moe Howard, the undisputed head of the 3 Stooges. Paul would stick his head on the photocopy platen along with a cut-out speech balloon. Like father like son.

    Perhaps more interesting than copying your face is creating a low-res 3D sculpture of your face.

    Ward Fleming originally created and patented Pin Art, AKA Pin Screen™ in 1976, then marketed in 1980, originally larger than knock-offs today. A signed original goes for $60 on eBay, I think it was about $35 when it first came out. Metal pins were changed to plastic because it was too heavy in metal. Today, knock-offs in plastic (under the name of PinPressions), is about $3 at Target for a 4 by 6, seasonal, Christmas gift.

    To honor this toy—and to give Christmas a little honor (!) — this is the last piece of art I've created before The Holidays, and probably for the year.

    Default Green

    I wanted to abstract a simple scene of paint cans, so I illustrated over the finished render, then used Filter Forge to add a slight haze to the scene.

    Default orange

    An unintentional companion to "green". I used Xara Designer a lot more than one would imagine, for masking, drawing the splines for creating the meshes...and for signing it!

    Both very creative/artistic beauties! What an imagination to go along with such skill!
