Saturday Illustrations: DIY Terminator, useful AI scripts, and more
- Planet Photoshop’s Corey Barker shows how to turn a human skull into a Terminator face.
- Sato Hiroyuki has created a bunch of useful scripts for Illustrator. (“Downloading these scripts is like jumping through a magic portal to awesome-land,” enthuses designer Adam O’Hern.)
- Paul Hollingsworth gives a peek into the development of his CS4 launch illustration. [Via Rufus Deuchler]
- I’m enjoying Mark Weaver’s sometimes freaky collages. Much more is on his site.
- Sweller than Swell: Gene Gable rounds up unintentionally absurd vintage advertising.
Saturday Photography: Iced wings, giant faces, & more
- I tried to blog Stephen Mallon’s fascinating images of the salvage of Flight 1549 (the one that landed in New York’s Hudson River), but they got yanked offline during the accident investigation. Now they’re back. [Via]
- Street artist Mentalgassi puts giant faces onto public objects in Berlin. Fellow artist JR does something similar in Rio.
- Spirit of ’76: Sveinn Birkir has been collecting images from 1976, his birth year. [Via]
- Larry Lars has recreated his photography room in Lego. [Via]
- To keep it safe, maybe you should make your camera ugly. (I saw this approach a lot with bikes in NY. Can’t say it ever saved mine there, though.) [Via]
- Cool idea for a photography business card: let the card work as a pinhole camera.
