I was going to have another ranty post about bad customer service and my 40 minute wait at the Genius Bar today to have my sick (read probably DEAD) laptop taken care of.
Or the crappy technical support and lack of responsiveness from the teachers/assistants in an Online Class I am taking.
In the end, when I sat down to my computer I decided that I couldn't be bothered with all that blah and hopped off to the go-to place for faces, started fiddling with an image which lead me to working on creating a set of PHOTOSHOP PAINTING ACTIONS that I will be offering students in the (slowly evolving) class that is currently on my drawing board.
I mostly make Photoshop Actions to suit myself and my own workflow and this is the first time I have worked on them so they might have a wider application to a variable audience. So far so good. And a nice break from writing html code.
Oh and someone asked me what paper I was using to print double sided work for the Sketchbook Project, its Jet Print Photo Matte. I think it's been discontinued but I bought several reams of it a year or two ago off Ebay and it's just the best.
