Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

who cares what you're using to make your work... its how you use it and what you come up with. programs only really dictate and work with your final medium.

usually i would agree on a million diff. subjects.. and sure.. i like that photoshoped art someone posted.. but think of it more like trying to get a lockring off with a hammer and a screwdriver.. i love photoshop.. i use it all the time.. but if you do text in it.. it will look worse.. if you give it to a printer its going to look worse.. and if you got hired to do a professional job.. and you send them a .psd? you might not get hired again.. and if you hand draw stuff and scan it.. and havent discovered streamline and illustrator.. you need to get on that..

yes... text for print in photoshop is a bad idea... but this goes back to my main point: use your tools for the intended outcome so you can create your deliverables in the correct file format and style for the output, whether it be offset, plotter cut vinyl or a xerox machine.

hell, deanne cheuk brings in tons of organic processes for Tokion's type treatments. you can make whatever work for whatever you want as long as you understand what your production requires in file integrity and compatability.

Thats what its for! I miss screenprinting. Now that I've finished my bike I'm wasting my money on building myself a set up so I can print again.
