Campaigns Sep 13, 11, 2:04 a.m.
I'm after some examples of campaigns. Not so much Ad campaigns as campaigns [real / serious / funny / satirical / political / stupid] for day-to-day stuff. Not bothered about animal / kid campaigns.
Looking for artists who have made statements / campaigns within their work too, be it Bacon / Scarfe / Shrigley / Davis /Kruger / Creed...
I guess anything where there is a 'point' to be made, real or otherwise.
Burrill's Oil print would be a decent example I suppose, of a serious one.
Photoshop Question Sep 8, 11, 9:56 p.m.
In photoshop if I hand draw some shapes is there a way / button that will make the shapes follow the closest smooth curve? For example, if I hand draw a circle, or a head it's not going to be that smooth a line - is there a tool to make the line smooth?
I know there is the 'smooth' tool but that's something else from my understanding?
V rough Image below - the lines around the face are jagged, I want them to be straight / smooth / crisp
Photoshop colour Question Sep 1, 11, 12:49 p.m.
I'm hoping the answer to this question is as easy as I suspect it is...Any help is appreciated.
I have some drawings done in ink on old paper. There are many marks / stains etc on the paper in different colours and many tones within the black of the ink.
I want to select two new colours and make Photoshop change the drawing to ONLY those two colours, keeping the colours in their own layer. Is there a way of doing this, or does the process have a name so I can look it up?
2 sites or 1? Or 3? Aug 26, 11, 7:30 a.m.
I can never decide what to do here and suggestions would be appreciated. My work is very mixed in terms of it's audience and purpose.
I draw / exhibit / illustrate - http://www.craigatkinson.co.uk
I also take photos / make books / exhibit - http://photo.craigatkinson.co.uk…
I also run a publishing house - http://www.caferoyalbooks.com
I am forever trying to make all three things 'sit' together in one site but it never seems to work. I'm far from a web designer and tend to use WP. The reason I have separated them is because photo types tend not to want to see the drawings, and vice versa. It is all my work though, so I feel like it should all be in one place.
Thoughts on the above?
new firefox Aug 17, 11, 7:08 a.m.
looks ok, anyone using it - tabs into groups looks nice
Camera Quest Aug 8, 11, 3:28 a.m.
Right now, or in the not too distant future, what is the best all round <£500 camera. Mainly for stills but needs vid. Interchangeable lenses isn't as important and size, so the Canon G series seems a good choice, for example.
Hombre_Lobo do you have any genius info?
I'm looking at G13, S100 [or whatever they'll be called, EPL3 / EPM1 but would prefer an all in one / compact. Does anyone know if the G13 will be M4/3?
Very general all this I know but discussions are, are they not?
Single Best Book Jul 29, 11, 2:52 p.m.
What's your best / favourite book? Just one, any topic / genre / not necessarily art or design related. Why's it so good / special?
UK Tshirt printing Jul 24, 11, 12:35 p.m.

Can anyone recommend any?
Wacom / apple track pad Jul 21, 11, 10:40 p.m.
Dear fellow users of QBN
I've never really used graphics tablets. I have used [and like, as sad as it is] Vellum for iphone. It's very simple, either ink, with pressure effect and roll effect; Graphite and eraser. The thing I like about drawing on iphone is the ability to quickly zoom in for detail and zoom back out to make fatter marks [the nib size alters depending on how far you are zoomed].
I guess the answer is yes, but with this being an app I'm unsure. Do Wacom have similar ways of working - quick zoom etc?
Can you suggest a decent Wacom to begin with?
Does the Apple track pad just act as a large macbook pro pad, or can it also be used as a tablet to some extent?
GPS digital compact camera Jul 18, 11, 5:25 a.m.
Other than iPhone, does anyone here own or have experience of a digital compact camera with GPS built in?
Android Phones Jul 12, 11, 1:35 p.m.
Who uses Android. Which Android phones are best [UK]?
Have they sorted out the battery yet? And 3G connectivity? And is there a decent podcast sync to itunes / mac?
how do I make this site? Jul 6, 11, 5:52 a.m.
I want to make a one page site that is about 3000px wide and ???px high. I know how to make a big table and fill the cells with images but I know that's not a good thing.
The reason I need this is that some of my work needs to exist on the same page, no light box / links etc, just one big page to scroll around. The other problem I guess would be load time of the page - is there an easy way to do any of this?
London shows Jun 27, 11, 12:07 a.m.
In London tomorrow and Wednesday. Any suggestions re exhibitions or anything happening tomorrow night? Street photography / photos made in France / RCA show already
Pens Jun 19, 11, 11:57 p.m.
I'm after some new drawing pens. I use sharpies a lot, Pilot V5 and Stabilo. I'm looking for other colour pens, are Poscas decent? Opaque? Any recommendations?
