Twetches... Twitter sketches

I been twittering for a couple of weeks now. I'm not a maniac, but I do enjoy the contact with friends and design news when it comes in. The main thing about all social networks, visually, is the avatar. The little picture that represents you.
So I thought it might be interesting to sketch things that have shrunk and played with already and then send them back... So its a little project now. It keeps my quick sketch skills up.

You follow me on twitter you get TWETCHED!! Twitter Sketched.

Done with Wacom Intuos 3 and Photoshop.

Here's a talk from Tim Brown all about creativity and play. The importance of play to feel free and safe enough to make those leaps and bounds. Great talk. I found it amazing that this is all the games and talks I've done in improvisation and clowning...

I think this is so important. It reflects how a person is and feels. The play is taken out of us by schools and work places and we are left, supposedly adult... but barren and ultimately very unhappy.

Take a look and go play in the sand.

CSS eMailer

Just finished a CSS/HTML conversion of Dushan Milic design for his first eMailer.

Nice clean layout with drop shadows... Had a bit of fiddle to get them to layout correctly under each image but got there in the end.

The thing with eMailers is the other end. You never know which program the end user is using and a lot of e Mail programs strip tags or add them. You can end up with four 'body' tags easily. You also have to keep the CSS inLine and not an external sheet.

Always a pleasure to work on someone else design... especially when they know what there doing.
