Illustration The late Dr. Jack Kevorkian, known for his life’s work of advocating assisted suicide and for helping to end over 130 lives with his ominous-sounding Thanatron, or “machine of death,” was also an oil painter. The doctor, who spend 8 years in prison, created a little-known body of work tinged with the horror of pain; illustrating his controversial ideas on compassion, the paintings take aim at his religious critics and appeal to a nuanced moral ideal where death is seen simultaneously as a terror and an escape. Kevorkian’s Thanatron takes its name from the ancient Greek personification of death; in his paintings, he also uses mythological themes. In “Fever,” he illustrates a hell composed of the ill and suffering; like Dante’s Virgil, he leads his painted patient through the depths of agony and fear with wide, sweeping brushstrokes.

Making Armatures With the Bones Tool in Flash CS4 Getting started with the bones tool can be intimidating and tricky, but it can be your best friend for animating once you've had some practice. You can create bones (armatures) for graphic shapes (like a simple triangle) or a set of movie clips. During this screencast, I'll demonstrate using the bones tool with shapes and will follow up using bones with movie clips. Animating shapes with bones gives your animation abilities you don't have with a simple graphic shape tween. This example shows animating the undulating tentacle of an octopus which would fall apart with a regular shape tween, but can be held together by using bones.
