Here’s some interesting stuff I’ve found/gathered over the summer whilst surfing the web. You will have to forgive me here, as hardly any of the content is connected. Simply a smorgasbord of good stuff.
1. Have several images to host on your site? Hongkiat ‘have put together a showcase of the best 10 galleries, slideshows and sliders they know of. They are all available for free, making them the perfect addition to position your website well for optimized browser and mobile viewing.’
2. If you do any portrait/life drawing, check out the examples on Carla Sonheim’s blog for drawing with a graphite stick.
3. If you love old ad imagery, have a look at “The Bart&Co. Historic Clip Art Collection” on Flickr.
4. Comic or graphic novel artist? Download the beta version of MotionArtist until January 2013.
5. Love the old sound of a typewriter? Download Noisy Typer for your Mac here.
6. Finally, if you haven’t checked out PBS’ webseries OffBook yet, you have been missing a great show. Their most recent episode is embedded below, but also check out their last one on the art of logo design.
