Beautiful Ugly: Distressed Type

Those of you who know me, and that is probably everyone reading this¬†sentence, know that I love typography. I know, it doesn’t always show. But lets forget about how lazy I am at updating my personal blog and focus for a moment on a really wonderful tutorial I found on GoMediaZine. Ever wanted to make a B-Horror flick movie poster, or a vintage looking rock poster, maybe just some sweet, beautiful ugly type…

Fixed Header & Footer: CSS

Another great tutorial site. This one was helping me solve a problem I was having with my own code when trying to get the footer of a page to remain stationary.  If you get a chance, I highly recommend looking at some of their other articles, Noob Cube has several pretty great articles.

Girls Who Geek

As some, if not all, of you know I work for a company and for them, very generally speaking, I build websites. In an attempt to fix a problem and gain some inspiration for new ideas on how to build an utterly table-less layout I did a general search and found a wonderful blog, Girls Who Geek.  Below I have linked the exact page I was using but I highly recommend just heading to the home page and browsing back. For beginners and intermediate web developers as well as WordPress Webbies out there, this is a great site for tidbits of very useful information

Dungeons & Dragons Flash Cards

Our group of artists met during college, most of us were in different fields.

We did work, graduated, and then played D&D. Now we do both.

If Dungeons and Dragons wasn’t a dead giveaway that we’re ¬†absolute nerds, the use of Flash Cards (in any capacity) solidified that status.

They’re more like reference cards than flash cards because the Human Cleric, Anie (writer of this post, in the event I slip into first person) can be difficult to play in the 3.5 edition. Especially when it is customized. I have all these spells, and on top of the general Spell List spells I also have Domains (which usually correspond to a particular deity). Well in order to keep track of my spells I began making a little book out of a whole bunch of left over index cards from school and these index card 3 ring binders I had left over, and of course being picky and wanting to copy and paste all of the info rather than write down a metric crap-ton of spells I copy and pasted everything into a photoshop template.

Why photoshop, you may ask. Because its what I know and rely on for accurate printing and precise measurements! Also… I wanted to add pretty, pretty pictures.

Here is a sample sheet from the Dream Domain:
