Artists Toolbox: MarkersArtists Tool Box: MarkersSo today I want to talk to you guys about one of my favourite colouring tools: markers. We've all seen them and used them, from the scented ones that some of us tried not to lick in grade 1 to the Crayolas that are everywhere to Sharpie Markers in the back-to-school section to the fancy markers that can only be bought in art supply stores. So here's what you need to know about markers The BasicsCheap or expensive, easy to find or not, markers can be easily broken down into 2 types: water-based and alcohol-based. For the sake of simplicity, I'm going to stick with 4 of the most common brands of art markers: Sharpies, Prisma Colors, Copics and Lyra Aqua Brush Pens. Of these, only the Lyra markers are water-based; the other 3 are alcohol based.Lyras, Copics and Prisma Colors tend to be double ended; one end tends to have a wider, wedge shaped tip and the other end typically has a finer tip or a brush. Sharpies are single ended

PE: Designs and Interfaces I - Gallery OverviewGallery DescriptionsWelcome to the Designs & Interfaces part of projecteducate's DeviantART Gallery Descriptions Month!Since this is a gallery with 21 categories and several sub-categories provided for 2 categories, there will not be one article, but three. A Gallery Overview, a closer look at Game Development Art and something about Common Misconceptions regarding submissions to Designs & Interfaces.What is Design anyway?This is a bit of a toughie. It is closely related to art, but at the same time couldn't be further away from it. Both art and design are visual media, but that's sort of already where it stops. For myself I found the simple distinction of art creating an emotional response, and of design telling me how to do something.Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it

Nom Nom 81 - Brie Nom Nom; Brie It's all a bit festive what with Christmas coming up which means lots of Christmas meals out. Quite often 'Brie' (a cheese) is served in various ways as a starter and I found this amazing recipe which is just gorgeous. Brie is was first created in the middle ages and its fame was spread by an emperor who sampled some Brie and declared it, frankly, amazing. It smells a bit and has a weird waxy skin that only strange people eat - but it's worth trying if you haven't already, particularly by creating something like the recipe below... Nom it yourself! Ingredients 200g Pack of Filo Pastry200g Brie cheese diced to 1cm50g Sharwoods mango chutney25g Melted Butter Method Cut filo pastry into 36 squares measuring approximately 8cm (3”) square.Place the Brie and mango chutney in a bowl and mix well.For each parcel, take 3 squares of filo and arrange o
Photography MonthlyThe end of the year is fast approaching us and to round off 2014, the Tate Modern in London is showcasing an exhibition of Photography to make us think. Conflict, Time. A huge survey has found that photographs which document big conflicts of the past years have a distinct lack of people captured within the images. That we are able to capture conflict in its most poignant moments is astounding - we've come so far with technology. Yet is there a lack of humanistic perspective throughout many historical images? Read more about the exhibition here.The British Journal of Photography (a website well worth watching) celebrates the life of Lewis Baltz, an iconic photographer who passed away in France a few days ago. Baltz is celebrated as a photographer who documented stark postmodernistic isolation. Often very opinionated (but aren't all political
