War and rebirth, in photos & illustration

  • When not driving between continents & documenting the experience, German-born, Brooklyn-dwelling photographer Christoph Bangert produces gripping photojournalism in Iraq, Darfur, and elsewhere.  You can find his Iraq effort reviewed here, and on the NYT site Christoph narrates over a selection of his photos.
  • Offering a different take on Iraq, Shooting War is a graphic novel written by Anthony Lappe & illustrated by Dan Goldman.  You can find background & a review on MotherJones.com.  According to that site, "To layer drawings and shading on top of photos, Goldman drew everything directly onto a 21-inch touch screen using an electronic, wireless pen, Adobe Illustrator, and Photoshop. Everything combined, this is a slick-looking book."
  • On a rather brighter note, the NYT features a slideshow on kite flying in Kabul–a colorful pastime banned under the Taliban.  See related article, with video.

“You suck at Photoshop”

Heh–in my line of work I’ve seen a lot of Photoshop video tutorials, but never one quite like this:

You Sucjk at Photoshop #1: Distort, Warp, and Layer Effects

Let’s hear it for facilitating emotionally abusive relationships the world over!  (Russell Brown interjects, "And I thought my demos were crazy!") ;-) [Via Doug Nelson & others]

On a more straightforward video training note, the pros at Total Training are running a special on CS3 training.  You can save up to 35%, but you’ve gotta be quick as the special ends tomorrow (Jan. 8) at midnight.
