It’s #TravelTuesday and I, Dave Williams, am here as always. This week I write from Los Angeles where I’m helping out with Russell Brown’s pre-con, the art of movie poster design. Yesterday up on stage was our very own design guru, Dave Clayton.
Wait, wrong photo! It’s this one: –
Dave delivered a great class on the hidden secrets of Adobe Illustrator, using and demonstrating some incredible plug-ins from Astute Graphics, and got several ‘knock-your-socks-off’ gasps from the crowd.
The theme of the whole pre-con is Vikings – namely the fictional movie ‘The Saga Of The Sword’. The projects you may have seen me involved with in the Netherlands and Iceland recently were all to do with gathering and creating content for this event. Part of the fun, and in keeping with the theme, was all about getting authentic and being Vikings ourselves.
We were helped with our tattoos and blood stains by Hollywood make-up artist Wen Zheng, who did a great job with Russell.
Adobe MAX kicks off tomorrow in person and online. Sign up here to watch for free online. If you’re attending, come and say hi!
Speaking of events, the KelbyOne Travel Photography Conference is coming up on October 25th. I’ll be delivering two classes on The Eiffel Tower Effect and Mobile Photography. There’s a great line-up of instructors ready to share a wealth of knowledge with you, so be sure to sign up!
This week’s chick-in has been fairly short and sweet, but I’ll be back on track next week with more for you. In the meantime, keep it real and remember to once in a lifetime as often as you can.
