Boo dreams and pancakes.
As much as I like them, enjoy making them, I should never eat pancakes for breakfast again. I crash so hard. I was in a doom funk from 10am to about 7pm yesterday. Not fun.


Feel headachey today. I don't think I slept so well last night. I had very odd dreams about marrying old friends and subsequently divorcing them when I realized I was straight, then marrying slight-framed girls with too much facial hair. Mick jagger, Keith richards and Jessica Simpson factored in somewhere too.

My brains are weird.

But, I spent 4 hours at Barriques last night and now have a very thin understanding of Illustrator CS. Gradient meshes are cool. It's not the same, though. It's all so smooth. Art doesn't look organic; well, mine doesn't at least. I may have to use Photoshop anyway to detaiol which doesn't get around the slowness problems I experience when I paint on giant-sized images. So, my goal of speedily working anything seems utterly unattainable.

I comfort myself with my new phone which i got for free. It has a 3d accelerator for no good reason.

Illustrator ain't never gonna be organic, brah. For that authentic blood on canvas feel, you need Painter.

I have yet to pay for any of these apps. This is why I use them.

What does Painter do? Is it worth not being a thief?

Painter is as close as you can get to physical media in digital form. I'm not sure that software is ever worth not being a thief. Thiefing is definitely for the win.

Know how it performs at 600 DPI with poster sized projects?

How does a new computer sound? ^_^
Why are you working at 600dpi anyway? Offset printing only does 300.

Because no one can give me a decet explanation or links to how printing digital images works. Everything everyone tells me is gibberish or uninformative. I'm going to ludicrous DPI to ensure that damn thing will work.

I want to print non-pixelated art work in big sizes. Working in more DPI avoids that, especially in glossy printing.

I hate that I can't find anything to read on printing digital images in high quality.
Grr Argh.

Want to ask my mom? That's what she does. I can give you her email address.

That wouldn't be weird?

"Greetings Mrs. Kelman, I'm a friend of your son Avi. I was wondering about a few things related to high resolution digital printing and he told me that you might know the answers. Also, I sincerely write to seek your co-operation and trust to enable my colleagues and I carry out an urgent business opportunity in my department. I work with the Union Bank of Nigeria PLC; currently I am the senior manager of bills and exchange at the foreign remittance department of my bank. I was the account officer to one Mr. Ali B. Ashraf who died along with his family on the 8th of November 2001 in an ADC Boeing 727 plane crash at Egirin River. All 141 passengers on board were feared dead...."

She'd be fine with it.
