…Javan Ivey is a Stratastencil master?

Javan Ivey’s My Paper Mind video is an interesting experiment in using the Stratastencil technique that he developed to make a movie.

Based after the Stratacut technique, Stratastencil is an additive process that adds layers onto each other while still showing the layer before it.

The result is an interesting time lapse meets three-dimensional effect that looks quite cool:

…It’s Website Wednesday: Splashup?

Splashup

Splashup is “a powerful editing tool and photo manager. With all the features professionals use and novices want, it’s easy to use, works in real-time and allows you to edit many images at once. Splashup runs in all browsers, integrates seamlessly with top photosharing sites, and even has its own file format so you can save your work in progress.”

Splashup Editor

Basically a free, online version of Photoshop, I was instantly impressed by how well Splashup works.

Open the editor, and it feels like a desktop application. Response is quick, it has a proper menu, and it integrates with your computer like it’s supposed to.

One of the best features of Splashup is the ability to import images directly from flickr, Facebook, Picasa, the web, and your computer, With a few simple clicks, you can import a photo, make the necessary edits, and then save/export the photo back into your site of choice.

Splashup Tools And Services

With the ability to edit multiple images at once, pixel-level control, layers of depth, and more, there’s not much that you’ll miss if you’re stuck in an online editing world.

Ready to give it a shot?

Then sign-up, load-up, and start splashing.

…Paint chips can be beautiful?

Belmont Art Park Paint Chip

This beautiful piece of paint chip was part of the Belmont Art Park wall that was illegally demolished by real estate developers earlier this year.

At over 1 centimeter thick, it appears to consist of 150-200 layers of paint, and shows what happens when you ‘just paint over it’.
