While working up some pages and Creative Tidbits for our Designing Women special I discovered the art of painting stones. I had no idea it is such a popular and wide-spread practiced art and craft. Although searches bring up literally millions of images, it is not a new art. It's one that's been practiced for thousands of years. Here are just a few of the highlights we found.
This week's Tidbits has something for everyone! We really enjoy learning opportunities, and Hannah Poindexter's piece is very good and should be part of our legendary "Brief History of Typography" series in the Type Department. Yes, and speaking of type, we do have a free font this time, and a free DTP template as well as more tips on creating your online portfolio.
We always welcome your suggestions and ideas and items for the DTG Creative staff to visit and review! Just lead us there!
Off to a great start, and here comes February! My favorite item in this edition of Creative Tidbits is the Photo exposition from the 2016 White House photographs -- WOW! Yes, and a free font, some excellent Photoshop Text effects and how to 'fix' Design cannibalism ... a great issue this week and remember, you can always suggest items for the DTG Creative staff to visit and review! Just lead us there!

Although there are all kinds of color filter generators online, and, you've probably developed your own tricks and workflows, you should never pass up the opportunity to work with yet another image manipulation filter. We had a lot of fun with this one, and I think you'll benefit here too! October 20, 2016
