A lot of my recent book writing ventures focus on the electronic format and have included how-to style guides on artistic concepts. But I am excited to have just competed a book for display purposes with art pieces called “Optical Artistry.” Check out some sample pages I have added to this post and buying option on my author site.
As Promised, here is the info on my new e-book and where you can find it.
The advancing technology we have available to us can be an incredible and amazing thing. However, it can also be costly and difficult to utilize in some cases. This e-book is designed as a collection of 65 online and downloaded resources to help assist creative people in doing the things they love with ease and at either no cost or affordable prices.
For those artists, photographers, writers and videographer types, this book is for you. For the people who work with audio and animation, this is for you.

When creating any form of visual art…
having color options to work with is very important. However, sometimes with so many shades out there, we can have trouble matching the exact ones to keep them uniform over a series of several graphic design projects.
After finding this helpful site, i figured I’d give you a few tips on making it less of a challenge.
First, you going to want to pick an initial color. Once you find one either on the web or in a website template you generate yourself, just plug that URL into Color Combos in the search box and the system will do the rest to locate all colors on the website page.
No website, no problem.
Another method is to use an image that contains the color you want to use for your work. Just upload one to Image Color Picker and easily find out the HTML, RGB or HSV code for it with no problem.
For quite some time, I have been a seller on a rapidly expanding and incredibly popular website called Fiverr. And while I love the site, it does limit the number of services an individual can provide. That being the case, You can now find more services being offered though a similar site called Fiverup.com.
These currently include the following options:
- App creation
- Spot color effects
- Formatting e-books
- Editing .pdf files
- Blog ads
- Product reviews
- Removing glare from pet eye photos
- Animated .gifs

Sure, it sounds like something goofy and unprofessional but this site is used by people ranging in profession from graphic designers to tattoo artists.

For years, graphic designers have be providing interesting and creative graphic services that literally make words into a form of visual art. You need not look further than a few different print ad campaigns or text-based company logos to realize that this is the case.

The official name of these digital creations are wordles and you can create your own, in seconds and for free at http://www.wordle.net.
Check out this colorful example direct from the website.
As both an art fan…
and a resident of the great city of Pittsburgh, I was extremely excited to find out that previously unknown art by Andy Warhol (Pittsburgh Born and raised) was found on floppy disks from the 1980s.
These computer generated pieces were generated in 1985 using an Amiga computer and unlocked by students at the city’s Carnegie Mellon University.
