Painted Ad » Galleries In these galleries, it is our intent is to showcase some of the better, more interesting, wall signs photographed then and now. It is a long-overdue undertaking since, up until now, my sign photos have been stored in various places – boxes, drawers, slide holders, photo albums, mounted and framed, and more.

Glazed, Distressed Paintings I was so excited when Kirstin and Jordan of Kojo Designs asked me to be a part of their “the sincerest form of flattery” series!

Merry Ho Ho Freebies!! Merry Ho Ho everyone! I hope all of you who are celebrating have a fabulous Christmas and an awesome New Year!! Here’s some presents for ya!! Adobe Creative Suite Toolbar Shortcut Wallpapers [Exclusive] Designers can work hours into the night to produce their best work for clients, their portfolio or their pet projects. To make the process easier, most would use shortcut keys on their regular design and development tools particularly Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Flash, to expediate the process. You can be sure that they are not going to go back to the traditional (and slower) click-and-search methods. That is why you can find tons of cheatsheets on the Web, designed to help designers and developers make better use of their time – in producing their masterpieces, not looking through the rows and rows of commands for the right action. In light of this, we thought that it would be nice to round up these shortcuts and release them as wallpapers for our designer readers.
