(rt) Assorted Lego awesomeness

 

PS–Semi-random question: Do you happen to know how/where I could buy just Lego train wheels & buffers? My mom just mailed the boys my 1983-era train set, and of course they’re wanting to build more cars. I see that Pick A Brick offers individual wheels & buffers, but I don’t know whether those require separate axles/connectors that aren’t sold there. TIA from the Micronaxx!

    (rt) Particle Men

    • Is he an illustrator or a sculptor? Andrew Myers makes amazing portraits made using pegboards & screws. “He starts with a base, plywood panel, and then places pages of a phone book on top. (Cool fact: He’ll use pages from his subjects’ local area.) He then draws out a face and pre-drills 8,000 to 10,000 holes, by hand.” [Via]
    • ⁃Ben Heine creates celebrity portraits made from thousands of circles. Of the technique he says, “I first made a photomontage using several references, then a digital painting and I finally applied my ‘digital circlist’ technique (I placed each circle one by one, there is no automatic process).” [Via] The work makes me think of mosaics by Charis Tsevis, including one of me.

  • CUTUP-MX showcases the unintentional art of cut-up Mexican billboards (apparently mashed up by billboard owners during lulls between paying advertisers).
  • Penney Design imagines recent movie posters as Atari 2600 cartridges. (Tangentially related: I was mentioning Panic’s awesome homage to Atari art to Adobe’s Russell Brown, and he mentioned that he’d worked at Atari in 1984. “I created in store displays to attract young 14 year olds into buying PacMan and Centipede games,” he says. You owe me some quarters, Cochese…)
  • Jonny Wan creates funky gun illustrations & more.
  • Infographics:

    Wednesday Photography: Fires, OCD, coffee, and more

    I have to admit, with a newborn in the house, a 17-month-old on the loose, and rotating sets of grandparents in town, I’m running on fumes when it comes to the blog. Somehow, though, I can’t quite cut myself enough slack to miss a few days, so let me briefly mention a few recent finds (including re-tweets) I’ve found compelling:

    (rt) Tips: Useful bits for PS, AI, etc.

    The majority of my blog readers don’t follow me on Twitter, and I’m not sure how many folks look at the tweet-feed embedded at right. Therefore it seems worth wrapping up some previously tweeted (but unblogged) links. I’m thinking I’ll flag these posts with “(rt)” in the subject line, so that you can ignore them if you already follow the Twitter feed. If you have any other suggestions, I’m all ears.

    • Layers Magazine offers 100 Wicked Tips for Lightroom & CS4 apps. I learned a bunch of good stuff.
    • Photoshop nuggets:
      • Photoshop tip: Cmd-click the New Layer button to create layer behind current one. [Via Cristen Gillespie.]
      • Photoshop CS4 tip: While zoomed in, hold down H while clicking anywhere. Move the square elsewhere & release. Kapow! [Via @gpenston]
      • “Does CS4 strip lens metadata like CS3?” No. Save for Web now gives you choices. Select “All” to preserve lens data.
  • Veerle shares a nice set of “Answers to small Illustrator and Photoshop problems.”
  • CreativePro.com advises on making your designs colorblindness-friendly. They forgot to mention PS/AI CS4 enhancements.
  • From PSD TUTS: “The Top 10 PSD Plus Tutorials of All Time.”
