My completed silkscreen project! Dental Hygiene at its brightest everyone! You might think, ..hmm, why a toothbrush Kate? Well, let me tell you friend. Dentistry holds a special place in my not really, it just happened to be some artwork I had sitting around. And as for why i made this in the first place, well, that's what artists do, we're weird. As you will notice in my previous post, i started out with a digital file and created separations then stencils. I was a little disappointed the art-center where my class was held does not have the equipment to produce films/screens, BUT they did help me learn the basic concepts of screen printing, so I guess theys is all right. Enjoy!

Citi Prepaid moves to CS4

We have officially transitioned to Adobe Creative Suite 4. A little late, I know, but exciting none the less. I installed the software to my computer last week, and this morning was getting to know the new features. I must admit its pretty different and slightly intimidating, but so was CS3.

Some of the new features are a little over the top. There was a big jump from CS2 into CS3. Some major improvements were made: InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator were all more compatible, the software was easier to use and easier to learn, overall more user-friendly. Now, I think it is a little harder to use because everything is so flashy, and alot of the tools and actions I've come to know and love are gone.

While looking for an *awesome* graphic to show with this post, I came across some interesting plugs on the Adobe website. Some students from the Savannah College of Art & Design talk about their interactive work.

Go Welsh: Site Re-Design

Our friends at Go Welsh! have posted a new and improved website. It is clean and simple, showcases some of their great work, and of course Craig has to mention allll the awards they win. I'm very impressed with the Armstrong spots.
