Some people enjoy travel, camping, or hiking. But me, I like hackathons and game jams. Which probably explains why I spent an entire weekend at the dark side jam. It may sound crazy to work all weekend with only a few hours of sleep on a hard floor (or couch if you’re lucky), but to me that’s fun.
I’m currently sitting in the ballroom of the NASA Ames Center in Mountainview California working on design assets for a game. What’s that you say, working at 3am? Yep.
This is a proud yet delayed moment. I just couldn’t wait any longer to show the navigation icons I have for my new website design. The navigation is one of the website components that anyone visiting the site is going to have to interact with. So it has to be easy to use and not annoy your visitors. Oh, and looking nice never hurts.
Hi again everyone. Sorry It’s been a while, but what with the recent move, starting a new class, and participating in a local hackathon I’ve been a bit busy. But for now know that I have officially moved from the windy city of Chicago to the San Francisco Bay area (and I must say, winters here are much more to my liking ^_^).
Recently I competed with a team of strangers at a wonderful event called ‘Everyone Hacks’. The main theme was education, and we worked on a website that would allow teachers to get books that were not in the budget, but still sorely needed. We called it Trader Books.
Every artist I’ve seen has a different method, but more than that their process is constantly changing. Because of this, and other reasons, I debated the merits of creating a tutorial of my process. However if in any small way I can help other artists the way other generous tutorials have helped me, then how can I say no? Especially since the main trick I use I don’t see many others talking about. Quick Masks.
