These are just a couple of experiments using the blend tool in Adobe Illustrator to manipulate type. It never occurred to me to try that before, but I think it creates some interesting effects. Not sure when I’d use them, but I’m glad to know more about that tool in general now.
FYI, you can toss the blend on a path by selecting the blend and the path and then Object -> Blend -> Replace spine.
A couple of years back, no rx I wrote a post about the robot nursery that I set up for my kid. Since then, visit this site I’ve collected a few more things here and there and I’ve been amazed at how many fun robot items for kids there are! I thought I’d show a few of the robot toys and items I’ve picked up along with links to where you can get them, in case people are interested.
In light of all of the instagr.am/Hipstamatic photos that are blowing up the web (and I love them, web so don’t get me wrong!), try I went out to shoot a few Polaroids on the neighborhood playground the other day with the SX-70. I forget sometimes that you need a fair amount of heat for the colors to come out right with Polaroid film. I’ll end up sticking the photo down my shirt as it develops, just to keep it warm enough. That’s the adventure of Polaroid film, I suppose.
A little tempera paint and some black paper was all it took for my Psycho themed entry into the office Halloween decoration contest. I even hung a bare light bulb behind it for a better shine-through effect. I might have to start it swinging when the judging starts! Thanks to Mr. Hitchcock for the arts and crafts inspiration!
