Play Time!

>> Thursday, May 14, 2009

I skipped out of work two hours early today so I could come home and play with last night's sketches. I thought I had three good ones, but when I looked at them this morning I realized one still needed a lot of work.

I made a bookplate for Jo out of the first sketch. If anyone's interested I'll make a version without her name available for download once I figure out how to make a PDF. We lost our PDF-making software when our old computer crashed and we still need to find a (free) alternative.
I'm getting ready to tackle sketch #2. I think I like this one and I'm going to be pissed at myself if I can't make the finished one look good. The watercolor robot has 57% of the vote so far in the poll (thanks for voting!) - and it makes me happy every time I see it - so I think I'm going to try that again. I may do a digital collage too since that's so dang much fun. I'll update with pics tomorrow morning.

Catching up through your blog... little late, may have already fixed this BUT if not!

If PC based: http://download.cnet.com/PrimoPDF/3000-10743_4-10264577.html?tag=mncol

If Mac based then there is one built in to the OS, or http://download.cnet.com/PrintToPDF/3000-13455_4-3604.html?tag=mncol

I used both of these YEARS ago. ;-)

Hey Chris -

We ended up downloading CutePDF, but it only prints a single file to PDF. What we loved about our old Adobe Acrobat was that we could merge multiple file formats into a single PDF. Miss that. I'll check out these alternatives. Thanks!
