Don’t thank me, pay me.

I get a feed for freelance jobs in the design and video industry and every now and then some job posts come through that I just can’t believe. I read one such post today and I’m pretty shocked to say the least so I thought I would share so that the 3 of you who […]

My Biggest Regret

Right now I don’t have very many regrets, and the majority that I can think of are pretty negligible and have been forgotten long ago – thereby implying they aren’t regrets at all anymore. The way I see it there are varying levels of regret and these levels can be judged by the longevity of […]

Thoughts about the blog

I was thinking about this blog yesterday and just running through a bunch of stuff in my mind. Things like ‘Why am I doing it?’ and ‘What if my dad reads it, or my brothers?’. With regards to the first question, let me fill you in. I am under no illusions as to how many […]

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day! Really? Historically Father’s Day hasn’t been a great day for me and I’m sure it’s the same deal for heaps of others – even you maybe? In fact, this post was inspired by a friend of mine – a really great girl called Kate – I spotted her updated on Facebook about […]

Creating a Light Wrap in Photoshop

In this tutorial I run through a simple way to create a light wrap in Photoshop to improve the look of photo composites. It’s a pretty quick run through, but once you know how to do it it’s easy to play around with to get the look you think looks best. It doesn’t work in […]

CS5 yo!

So Adobe’s CS5 suite of apps is soon to be released. Some the stuff I’ve seen and heard about seems pretty impressive so it’s kind of exciting – the only problem is if you can’t afford the upgrade… We’ll see what happens in a few weeks time? If I get a few more jobs soon […]
