Interview on CreativePro
Thought you might enjoy this - and interview I did with CreativePro to mark the publication of my new Photoshop book, a compilation of articles I've written for them over the years.

Enjoyed it thoroughly - love the kids TV eyes and the roundabout sign.

TV eyes favourite for me as well.

Some interesting links too.

Tempted to go for the book.

Re: Interview on CreativePro
Well I got the book. Just done a quick skim. Some of it I have seen before online and some is completely new. Some tutorials have few surprises for an experienced users and some take me places where I am weak and can really benefit from trying new techniques. All in all I am very glad I bought it.

If I may sound one teeny negative note I think it is a pity you don't provide more comprehensive links to your example images. It's a wee bit sporadic in places. I personally find that the first time one attempts a tutorial it is far better to follow the bouncing ball and sing along with the same image (and, by implication, settings) given in the tutorial. Once confident with that, one can take off on one's own images.

Or maybe I am just a wimp ...............

I know exactly what you mean, David. The format of the book was dictated by CreativePro - Iíd have done it rather differently, given the chance. But glad you found one or two pieces of use in there.

Re: Interview on CreativePro
Oh yes!. One or two very useful ideas gained already.

Re: Interview on CreativePro
Over the weekend I had one of those very rare moments of having some time to spare (either that or no motivation to do anything of worth) anyway, I spent a few hours following various links from this post. Having been a HotCHiPs member for a few years now, I was aware of some of Steveís talents outside of Photoshop however not as aware as I probably should have been. From journalist to author, artist to a cabinet maker and public speaker to radio presenter, it's all there. I was fascinated to find the back catalog of Gadgets and Gizmos podcasts. A great blend of humor, useful and utterly useless information which is now the top of my podcast list. I would love to have a rummage in the room where all the Ďdemoí products get dumped after they have been featured on the show. As I would your workshop where you make your furniture and sculptures. As you probably know Steve I also upcycle a few bits and thought I was quite good, but some of your creations put mine to shame. Keep up the great work Steve.

Well thank you, Ant! Iíve greatly enjoyed seeing your creations over the years as well. And Iím really pleased youíve found Gadgets and Gizmos, itís a lot of fun to record.

For those who havenít stumbled upon it yet, you can find the podcast wherever you usually find podcasts - search for HRKN and that should take you to it.

I liked your interview, Steve. I also like the tip to flip your work horizontally, and the curieaux furniture. Normally I would have bought your book, but these days I find reading more and more difficult (macular problem).

Re: Interview on CreativePro
Lovely interview Steve. I'm in awe of your story. I would love to have followed a career in graphics but never believed in myself. I always strive for better and am never satisfied with result.

Hats off for doing it your own way. Respect!
