  • Texas is on fire!!

    With this lack of rain Texas is really in peril right now.



    The Texas Forest Service is reporting that a total of 1,626 homes have been destroyed by wildfires across Texas in the past seven days. 1,386 of these destroyed homes were from the Bastrop fire. The other 240 destroyed homes are from other fires raging across Texas. The areas hardest hit at this time are near Austin, near Houston, and in northeast Texas. Twenty new wildfires were reported yesterday. These new fires cover approximately 1,422 acres. There are currently 126,844 acres burning across the state of Texas.

        I would love to donate some of the rain we've been having. They need it, we've had way too much.

          Wow that is really crazy! Living in NY my whole life I can't imagine what that's even close to being like!

              I was down in Palacios ... the bottom of the map ... its flat and dry ... but that's the majority of Texas .. they are really having a hard time getting it under control.

              all our folks down that way please be aware and take care of yourselves ♥

                        Oh, and RKK, the majority of Texas isn't flat and dry. It's actually quite diverse, being so large.

                            East Texas is dense forests, of course out west towards Big Bend is mountainous (albeit dry), of course we have the hill country in the middle, coastal area, etc.

                              I must have been in a different part of East Texas lol .. there were clumps of trees there and there ... but I really didn't see any dense forestry. I did the Houston to Palacios route more times than I care to mention .. maybe I'm trying to block it all out

                                I wouldn't show sketches. You're demonstrating your propensity to give away your work for free, without any sort of contract or agreement to terms. It's a bad precedent and it makes it more likely in...

                                It took me a few seconds, but instead of AMP D, it says AMPED. It's clever making an electrical plug from the E and D. The abbreviation "amp' has a bunch of definitions, like amplifier or ampere....

                                It's been my experience that when clients see rough sketches, they are typically unable to envision a sketch becoming a finished product. They also see it as unfinished and seem to feel an urge to want...

                                Hey, guys, I'm really in the need for some inspiration. I'm looking for websites that show your profile/CV/PORTFOLIO sort of thing. like a LinkedIn page but without the social BS.

                                Are those printed in CMYK? If your press is restricted to four colors, you're just not going to get realistic images without CMYK separations. And there's no sure-fire way of easily combining the colors...
