… on Saving Color for the Web

Posted By Josh Dillon

This is by far and large the handiest damn article I’ve ever read on saving for web in photoshop. This correctly aligns ICC Profile expectations with in-browser color handling in Safari and FF 3.5. This is a must read article for those of you in the web design or multimedia design fields.

The post (in all it’s glory) can be found over at Viget Labs.

Being a bit of a night owl myself, it’s easy for me to understand 100% of what this article is talking about. Related in easy to understand instructions, here’s a basic explanation of a good night’s sleep, as told by Christoph Niemann, syndicated illustrator and my new hero.

New Bolle Shirt

Every year I do a shirt for Bolle to sell in their booth at the US Open. This year’s shirt is above.

Apparel has always been an important part of my creative framework. I enjoy the simplicity of the design limitations, the application of functional creativity and the chance to get down to some serious graphics work. A shirt’s image is more than just a straightforward graphic, it’s a chance to tie multiple layers of meaning into a single work.

This plate is one of several in the “Hungry Plate” series from Merry Design Studio. The collection of five plates begins with a full plate and ends with a nearly half eaten plate (think form, not necessarily function here.) Pretty clever stuff really.

Three Frames

Posted By Josh Dillon

It’s an old joke, but a good one.

The animated .gif has been around as long as the internet, but for those of us that actually remember when they were all the rage threeframes.net/ has an answer.

The idea is to take three frames from any particular movie, animate, rinse, and repeat. The effects are crazy. I HIGHLY recommend that you check this one out.

Scott McCloud is a personal hero of mine. When I was 12 I wrote him a letter explaining how awesome he was.

He wrote me back. By hand. He’s a classy, classy guy.
