Remember that I told you I would start the new year with a bang? Well the time has come to reveal what that was all about. Remember December’s post “What is graphic design?”. I know I have been listening in silence, but the response on that post really blew me away. So many people responded and I thought, ‘why not do something with that and make it a creative challenge as well?’. Hopefully you had some time to load up those creative batteries because you’ll need it.

Are you in the mood for some Action? I’m talking Photoshop Actions :) They are the perfect solution to handle tasks with one click. An Action is a recording of several Photoshop operations and commands. Once the Action is created, one click is all it takes and the task will be excecuted. It’s very powerful, can save you heaps of time and it’s actually not that hard to create. Oh and before someone asks, this tutorial is written for version CS3. Certain things might be different in previous Photoshop versions.

Ever wondered how to create those popular, but elegant tapered lines? Or just simple lines that go from very thin to tick and back to thin? If you create an Art Brush for this, you’ve really done half the job already. So the good news is, it’s easy and it’s fast.

My body seems to have recovered nicely from all late evening excitement (in my timezone that is) from playing the previously announced live Layer Tennis match. A good night sleep can work miracles :)

This coming Friday is going to be something special. So what’s up? Well, I got an invite for the popular Layer Tennis game set up by Coudal Partners. I challenged my opponent like in the good old days by throwing my glove before her :)

If you want to get your hands dirty and create your own custom set of grunge brushes you’ll love the January/February issue of Layers Magazine. I’ve written an extended article on how to create these brushes.
