Why do you have to retire at 65? I can stop working, have an unstable income and an uncertain future right now, why add old age on top of that?
Life is too damned short to be around people that don’t make you wish you were immortal.
Tuna salad is viscous liquid. Bread is a porous solid. Putting them together without something, like cheese, between results in viscous bread and porous tuna salad.
Finished a freelance project this week! I was hired to create a logo for a friend’s condo, Helene’s Retreat. I’ll be writing about the entire process a little later this week, I have homework to get done for now…
I totally forgot to mention I got Product Hunt access the other day! I can comment and hunt things all on my own. Follow me there if you like, no promises anything I post is stellar.
Recently a friend asked me to make him a profile picture for his Twitch account. He wanted half to be his face, and half to be a Dead Space mask. Since I’ve been in a flat design phase for a few months, it was a perfect fit. This post is pretty image-heavy, obviously.
I have this problem. It’s called “Sometimes I check out for no reason.” Yeah, I’m not good with names. But seriously, sometimes I just get caught up in one thing or another and I completely forget about things that were so important I was staying up late and squeezing them in just to be able to do them…and then I always get a little withdrawn around my birthday as well.
Hence why I haven’t posted regularly in months! HOLY SHIT. So, there’s something going on that I can’t talk about yet, but it’s a good thing and should help my family make extra money. Let’s just say I might have found a job. 😉
So I participated in the stress test and the open beta for Overwatch. I might be addicted. I spent way too many late nights and hours blowing shit up with Junkrat, flying around like a lunatic with Pharah, and zooming through enemy fire with Mercy. HOLY SHIT THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER.
Ahem. Anyway, my friends and I are all jonesing super bad since it doesn’t release until May 24, so I drew McCree, one of the heroes, for my husband. He wanted a graphite drawing, and I chose the cover of McCree’s comic as I thought it was a great image. Turns out that doing graphite shading when the original is shaded with watercolor-esque is fucking hard.
This is one of the only drawings I’ve ever done that I like; that just doesn’t fucking happen. Next up: Junkrat!
Tools used: Bristol paper, graphite pencils
CSS has come a long damned way from the days of having to use tables because positioning wasn’t available. (Sure, dating myself a bit, but as they say: you’re only young once but you can be immature forever.) Time was that if one wanted any sort of effect on text – and we’re talking system installed fonts here, nothing fancy – you had to create an image. Once the semantic web was encouraged, you then had to replace a heading tag with said image to get the best SEO as well as have the creative look. Of course, every browser had different support for the technique so there were dozens of image replacement hacks. (If you’re interested in a history lesson, CSS-Tricks has an entire page dedicated to the different techniques.) Nowadays CSS can do a helluva lot of basic text effects directly in the browser, with fantastic cross-browser support.
