Alberta Street's Last Thursday

Alberta Street knows how to party and if you are an artist you won't want to miss out on this great opportunity to get your name and your art out there. From 12th up to 33rd, the streets are lined with artisans and performers alike, from face painting and Henna art(which I had to indulge in) to bike chain art, there is definitely something for everyone at this festivity. For the June month, the day was weather perfect with a blazing sun and a slight cool breeze. The crowded streets buzzed with… Continue

Free Geek is run mostly on volunteers and has a great vision for why… Continue

My First Rotoscoping Project

Here is my very first rotoscope project. Rotoscoping is making a video look animated using Photoshop and Flash. My next one will look and work better, I learned much while doing this one. For instance, next time I will use less than 50% of the trace bitmap effect that makes the image look like a cartoon. I will have to experiment some more. Once I perfect the technique, I plan to try my hand at making a tutorial about it. Stay tuned.…
