Twelfth Night

Don't forget to take down your Christmas decorations.




We think Les' keyword Kung Fu proved strongest: the words "sketch", "drawing" and "portrait" seemed to trigger more art/design related ads than any other kind. (Okay we cheated a little - these words outnumbered the other categories.)


So, the small-print theme for the next week or two will be drawing. We'll probably be posting a series of very, very basic tutorials on using GIMP - the free, open-source alternative to Photoshop.


If you want to play along, you can download the latest version here: www.gimp.org/downloads/.

  9. I plan on playing along. Oh yes, I have plans. When it comes to any form of GIMP, I have plans.

    Funny, the art ad I am seeing now is for the same name brand draw pad (of which information has been installed on my computer.)
    Coincidence? We'll see.

    Or will we? Pardon my language, but your shit is freaking my shit out now.

    I thought those were little Nazi candies that someone preserved. "Mmm! Flavored like what Magda Goebbels gave her children!"

    I'm sorry, that was in poor...taste.

    Have some un-related tabloid: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article111865.ece

    P.S. - Stay out of my head.
