  • In the hands of a master

    Over the years, I've heard and read so many discussions here, and elsewhere about which tool, which platform, which software is better than another. Long, often mind-numbingly long threads on the PC vs. Mac.

    Sure, some of us remember the pre-digital days when this kind of discussion was relatively a much smaller issue (which stat camera, which tech pen, etc.) and yet--- masterful works were still being produced.

    Which brings me back to the purpose of this post. I'd like to start a collection here of great examples which prove that 'in the hands of a master' the choice of media, brand, or instrument is largely irrelevant.

    Let's start with what inspired this thought in me this morning, while driving in and listening to NPR's Morning Edition. Jake Shimabukuro is a master of a very humble musical instrument: the ukelele.

    Enjoy! And then add your own examples.

    That was awesome Broach.....enjoyed listening to that while working.

    I use to play the Ukelele until grade four.

        I thought this seemed familiar to me. I had seen this video a while back. He is pretty amazing.

          I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

          Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

          In terms of real world critique, if...

          Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

          Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

          The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
