Learn From the Best

As a graphic designer and student, one of my favorite places to dig through for tutorials and new techniques is Skillshare. Skillshare is a website that hosts several teachers who are usually professionals in their fields of design, photography, marketing, etc. and helps them create classes through series of videos about topics related to their trade. There are courses on calligraphy, photoshop, illustrator, diy crafts, personal branding, and many more that any creative would find beneficial. There is a membership fee for the website and in my opinion, it has been worth every penny. I consistently get new tips and tricks as well as inspiration from the content creators there. Skillshare also hosts a community for people taking a particular course where they are able to post their own projects and get the instructors input as well as comments from other students. I love this site and I think it is something I will be active on for a long time. Check it out here.

Moonscape

Wish I took this… Sorry to bomb the “take a photo” bit but education time!

NASA has been uploading hundreds of their analoug photos into the digital public domain. So technically… I can do this.

What’s so significant? Back up… Is this a necessary question? I love NASA and all other endeavors because somehow they avoided becoming political. They’ve captured our minds and hearts and here they are going digital. They’re making their knowledge way more accessible to a tech generation. If you said exploration and learning weren’t important, why’d you read this far?

So, to actually fill the criteria of this post I would take my own photo of the Moon… Except currently it’s underfoot, if you will. Its being massively eclipsed by the earth. IE on the opposite side of the globe.

So! Here’s a rendition hand painted by yours truly:
