s Image Editor - Phoenix As per this blog post from July, we have officially closed the advanced suite of Flash tools (previously located at advanced.aviary.com) in order to focus on our new company direction powering the photo experience in 3rd party apps. While we hoped that everyone would have taken the time to retrieve their files since our notice, we recognize that the message may not have been seen by everyone. Therefore, if you were not able to retrieve all of your files to date, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address associated with your account to help retrieve your files. Do this quickly. While the tools will remain offline, we may continue to explore new homes in whole or in part, for specific elements of the suite. I would like to make a few recommendations for alternate tools to try: I have a number of thank yous to make, but I'll leave out names because there are so many and I don't want to risk leaving anyone out:

The Art of Travis Louie 3D Illustrations Come Alive on the Page! Figures come alive and jump off the pages in these illustrations by Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki. By displaying simple pads of paper at special vantage points, the artist's amazing charcoal and pencil drawings form playful 3D optical illusions. The 21-year-old artist has quite a knack for perspective and each new drawing is more surprising than the next. Hideyuki identifies himself as an anamorphic artist, which is a style of art that stems from the early Renaissance. The way Hideyuki sets up his sketch pads reminds me of opening a pop-up book and having the scenes emerge before my eyes. If you enjoy being visually challenged by these types of impressive optical illusions, you can check out similar work by Chilean artist Fredo, here. Nagai Hideyuki's website via [Visual News]
Artodyssey Words as Images by Ji Lee Whenever we read a news story, book, letter, or any other form of text our brain relates specific words with previously seen images. By accessing our past memories, like a hard drive, our brain is able to create a visual illustration simply out of words. Taking this one step further, Ji Lee eliminates the need for our brain to do this process. Ji Lee takes popular words and brings them to life by adding a sense of character, fun and playfulness to them. “When we were children, letters were like fun toys. Today we will feature creative examples from Ji’s book titled “Word As Image.” “This project started nearly twenty years ago as an assignment in my typography class at art school. Anyone can create a word as image. Note: All Rights Reserved by Ji Lee. Check out our previous articles: Did you enjoy this article?
