This morning I was working on a t shirt for one of our clients and I got to incorporate some pretty cool halftone patterns. Since I had never done any actual halftone patterns in the past (only photoshop filter junk, and I do mean junk) I had to search out the assistance of the internet and I stumbled upon this quick and dirty/very helpful tutorial. I know a lot of the newby’s out there love their screen-printing, so go, be fruitful, and multiply.

What happens when Jim and Tammy Fay Baker spawn? Something pretty cool actually. You may not believe everything Jay has to offer (I have my opinions) but he’s doing something very ordinary very differently and I think we can all take away from that.

The thing I hate most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative, ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.

Mr. Sean Connery.

Are we really all that surprised?

I.D. magazine has been barrading me with e-mails begging me to read their magazine. It does have some juicy layouts and great articles, but judge for yourself by thumbing through this month’s online version of the design rag. I’m thinking about subscribing just so they’ll leave my inbox alone.

Cher to be Catwoman?

hmm…methinks this could be a rumor.

Finally.

Two years after their last record, “Eat, Sleep, Repeat” Copeland officially announced the details of their next album “You Are My Sunshine.” Slated for an October release, this album is buzzed to be another great musical journey and I can’t friggin wait. Copeland has been my favorite band since my freshman year of college. Whether you like the journey they’ve taken or even if you don’t like them at all, you can’t deny the visionary that is Aaron Marsh. His ability to weave a song is uncanny and timeless.

The new album is very exciting, but more exciting is the way Copeland has gained attention for this record by viral marketing (true viral marketing). So smart(this is a must read, even if you’re not a fan. This is advertising at it’s finest). If you didn’t respect the band before, maybe you will now. Not to mention the photography used in the new album is pretty beautiful.

Cheers fellas, I can’t wait for October 14th.

My rock band days are behind me, but I still like picking up the old six string and strumming a few tunes. Now I can master my favorite Dire Straits song with the help of Songsterr.
