Toyota Rocks with Social Media Madness

Check this out, this was shared on FB from my friend and totally smokin photographers Shane Melenbacker and Sarah Pfeiffer. It made me laugh when I was having a particularly bad evening. I like this so much I am going to have to re-make it to fit us and use it for a Christmas card.


Of particular note is the genius of the creative Ad Agency that Toyota used. This video went viral. Do you thinkĀ  this may have more impressions to Toyota’s target market than Billboards, news media or other traditional marketing techniques?

Grandpa Elliot Sings The Blues

Grandpa Elliott Sugar Sweet

I know most people have seen bits and pieces of Playing For Change. The first time I saw one of the videos I loved the idea and also appreciated the high quality execution of the mix. I am not sure which of the songs I heard first but I quickly became a raving fan. Grandpa Elliot is one of my all time favorite musicians, I love his music. Enjoy the vids and be sure to check out the Playing for Change Website.

Here is a question that has came up a few times that Heather has addresses for us.

I've had the question come up that I felt was important to talk about:
Brush Ghosting.
What is it?  When your computer gets "tired" you will start to see white
lines (the outline of your brush if your preferences are set to "brush")
overlay your canvas.  Don't worry.  This is simply ghosting.  There is no
damage to your painting.  It's literally an illusion.
How do you fix it?  Simply zoom in or zoom out.  This takes care of it
each time.  You'll find this happens when your computer's RAM is not maxed
out, OR you use a lot "captured dab" Painter brushes.
So whenever you see these white ghost lines, don't worry.  Your painting
is safe.  Simply zoon out once or twice.
Happy painting!
