An Art Journal Page: from start to finish Hi, hi, hi. Well, it turned out that some of you were indeed interested in me posting a tutorial on the kind of pages I've been making in my Learn Something New Every Day journal. Which was nice, because really, you could have just shrugged saying "Meh. Whatever." when I put the idea out there! So, for those of you who'd like to see how this page came into being: Locus Online Features: Cory Doctorow: Writing in the Age of Distraction from Locus Magazine, January 2009 We know that our readers are distracted and sometimes even overwhelmed by the myriad distractions that lie one click away on the Internet, but of course writers face the same glorious problem: the delirious world of information and communication and community that lurks behind your screen, one alt-tab away from your word-processor.

The Journey, Not the Destination: The Sanctifying Effect of Travel in ‘Grim Fandango’ For a long time, there has been a Holy Grail of sorts among the gaming community—the game Grim Fandango. Constantly praised as the best adventure game, the most intuitive point-and-click interface, and the finest work ever produced by Tim Schafer (Psychonauts, Full Throttle, Broken Age), it has long been sought after by those familiar with its legend. However, the game had not sold well on its release by LucasArts in 1998, and as a result it was discontinued (along with most of LucasArts adventure line) a few years later.

Over 100 envelope templates and tutorials Tonniece said... Good gawd Mel, you have been very busy. Thanx soooo much for all these links, and all the time you spent in getting them to us.You are THEE BEST July 15, 2008 at 4:00 AM The Official P/T Collective Archive by Peg Robinson. © 1997 Disclaimer: Distribute freely. The more folks who know how to give and take crit ethically, humanely, and usefully, the better. One of the things I was beginning to suspect just watching the dialogues go by on the newsgroup has been confirmed reading the responses to my query about a crit essay.
