500px / Street View of Grasse by Bruce Allinson

So, yesterday I noticed that the Perfect Effects 8 App and plugin for Lightroom, Aperture and Photoshop had gone free for a limited time I of course grabbed the download straight away and after work last night looked for an image to test it out with.

Iv’e not used Aperture for a couple of years so I thought I’d open it up for this. I found this old holiday photo from a good 5 years or more ago in France and here is the result.

I think I’ll be using Perfect Effects 8 again

Great ad makes me want to grow a beard and bite the heads of live chickens!

MJW’s new campaign for Valvoline pays tribute to horsepower and its effect on man. With every grunt of the engine, modern man is taken back further to his primal self. Only when he emerges from his high-powered car does he go back to being a regular guy.

I’m not so sure that this will have the same effect on me with our 96bhp diesel Picasso!

Spectacular Moleskine Doodles Explode with Energy

This is what Moleskine books are for – Creativity and Fun!

Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes proves that doodling can be so much more than scratching unintelligible scribbles on paper. Through his Sketchy Stories blog, Rosanes shares his wonderful world of doodling in a simple Moleskine sketchbook. Equipped with an ordinary Moleskine, a few Uni Pin drawing pens, and his innate gift for drawing, the artist is able to transport viewers to a world where tiny, cartoonish creatures explode with gusto to make up larger entities.
