Life is getting pretty crazy around the studio lately, but not so much that I can’t share a few cool links from the internets. I’ve categorized them for your viewing convenience…
Events:http://www.meetup.com/GirlGeeksToronto/ Had a great time at the Toronto Geek Girls meet up this past Monday. This was my first attendance to this meet up and I was really impressed by their level of organization, thoughtful topics and their hospitality. The topic for this meet up was everything Adventures in Arduino which is a whole world of technical geekery that I had no idea existed. It was a fascinating topic and I look forward to many more outings to this meet up. Great group of creative folks and fantastic topics! Can’t you just tell how much fun we had by this pic:
Interviews: I’m catching up on these contemporary illustrators http://illustrationfriday.com/category/interviews/ I love the illustration friday website! Every week they have a topic that artists can illustrate and then share with the community. A fantastic place to find motivation to draw and create.
Awesome Freebies: I came across http://www.premiumpixels.com/ last week while I was digging around for some free web graphics. A fantastic site if you need some vector or pixel art in a pinch.
Cool 3D Stuff: I can’t wait to try this out http://jokermartini.com/2012/05/09/cobwebs/ A maxScript that generate cobweb effects over 3D objects. Check out the images of what artists have created, this Alladin lamp is my favourite! There are also a few interesting tutorials available here. I’ll be using this one about importing vectors into 3DsMax very soon.
Learning: I got a ton out of this presentation by Mike Alderson of Man vs. Machine. Some excellent insight into making a big creative pitch. These guys are the pros and the work they put out is absolute genious.
