I rarely reblog but I felt compelled to. I really enjoy the work of Jeremiah and Danny from Geo a Day. They do an incredible job with color, light, and volumes. I love the mood of this piece.
This is a ticket I made in Photoshop. Someone please draft me on Dribble! I’m here.
I saw a man dying in the street yesterday, in San Francisco’s China town. He had a gangrenous leg, so swollen he was unable to wear a shoe. He looked exhausted, he could not even hold his head up.
People were walking by, not giving a damn.
I stared at his leg, red, swollen, covered in cuts and orange pus, and I wished I could take him to a hospital, but I was too scared to touch him.
I should have called 911, but just like everybody else, I ended up walking by.
Why? Were this in France, I would have called the firemen. They always come and take you to the hospital for free.
Why is it more acceptable to die in the streets, in the United States?
Is this the choice we made as a country? To let people die so that we can pay less taxes?
We also say life is sacred… but apparently it’s only sacred until you’re born.

False-color Saturn replica I made in Photoshop. Just wondering…
Hello blog, long time no see. I was busy with life. It’s been exactly one month since I quit Facebook and it has had the most positive effect on my attitude and quality of life.
I started two classes at CCSF: Japanese, and HTML5/CSS3. I took a placement test for Japanese, and scored 75% which allowed me to register in a second-year class. I had not spoken Japanese in 14 years (precisely half of my existence so far) so readjustment was rough, but I’m starting to recover grammar and kanji archives from the confines of my memory. As for HTML5/CSS3, I’ve been looking forward to taking this class ever since I first heard about HTML5 video two years ago. You may have seen my previous post about the HTML5 Video Japanese logo, it summarizes pretty well the feel of this semester.
I am not taking any design class this semester, but I am still enjoying the skills acquired in Photoshop 98A. The picture above is an envelope that I “drew” tonight, small and large versions. It was all about subtle gradients, shadows, rounded corners, layer masks, transparency and whatnots. I am pretty happy with the result, it looks clean and sharp, but the file is a mess.
Icon design would be better done in Illustrator (so I hear), but Illustrator feels very obscure to me. I tried playing with it a few times but I can’t seem to get the logic behind it. Photoshop started making sense to me the day I understood the concept of layers. I’m still waiting for that kind of revelation to happen with Illustrator.
