It's been a while.....

Hey everyone....I surely hope you've not given up on me.....I've just had daily life going on and I've not been posting....I did get a few things created for my boss as well as a swap for a group of mine that I'm quite happy with....just thought I would share them with you as well as what started out to be a baby blanket which turned into a baby wrap.........I do also have a couple of files I've created in making these items.........






To decorate the snowman after cutting him out....I used some of my Perfect Medium stamp pad and covered the body of the snowman then used some tinsel embossing powder and embossed with my heat gun...I used some black rhinestones for the buttons and  a 3D black ink for the  mouth and then used wiggly eyes....the carrot of course was part of the cut file.....I used some scrap ribbon and fibers for the scarfs....the arms were also part of the cut file and I covered them also with the Perfect Medium and then covered with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and heat embossed......The hat I cut two of and layered them with foam dots to give them a bit of depth....I also covered the top and bottom layers with Perfect Medium pad and then coated with clear embossing powder and heat embossed to give the hat a glossy look.....

Here's the file I designed and created for the Snowman...







The Santa I used some pearlized chalk on the cheeks and nose to make them "rosey"  red marker for the lips and wire for the eye glasses that I used with one of my jewelry tools....the beard, pom pom and brim of the hat I took a cotton ball and tore apart and used glossy accents to glue down the cotton...I also used wiggly eyes...
Here's the revised version I did of the Santa...






















I used several embossing sleeves with my Cuttlebug to give this stocking lots and lots of texture and used my Tim Holtz ink pads to hit the high spots of the embossed items.......used 3D paint to decorate the gingerbread man and also used embossing sleeves on the present also hit the high spots of the present with Tim Holtz ink pads....used a scrap piece of ribbon to make the tab on the stocking.....I've also glued some little bells on the the stocking parts that come to a point and on the tip of the stocking toe.....

Here's the file I designed and created for the Stocking...



Then here's the baby wrap I completed for a friend of ours....I started this about a year ago when they found out there were pregnant.....ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm the baby's about 3 months old now!!! LOL...Can you say I was dragging my feet JUST A BIT!!! :(




Now here's a couple of other files I created from some requests I had received....hope you like them......

CEREAL BOX  FOR CARD SETS


HALF SCALLOP FRAME



Okie Dokie....Now the last item I'll share for tonight is a swap I'm in with my ARTHaven Creations & Friendships group....This is for a Christmas Swap we're working on and I needed to do a stocking......you CAN insert something inside the stocking so it is actually functional..........

live video collaboration

Well last night was a little crazy. Special thanks to everyone who tuned into smearcam live. We didn't end up catching the rat unfortunately and I kinda made a huge mess and woke up to a pile of gluebords with ratpoison, apple sauce, bacon, raw turkey, bbq sauce, cheese, and whatever other gross shit all over my floor. Rat cam got kinda boring after a while so we started collaborating on an animation on Stickam. Adam Foley prepped all the images & sent them over to me for anim & we met this guy Targaryan / Corey Pellizzi who sent in his music track to use at the beginning of this pile of nonsense.

So here it is. sloppy but fun. I think we'll do it again soon but with more notice so more people can interact & send in images / music, video... anything that can be incorporated into the video.

DEVO rocked last night like a fountain of everlasting awesome. Crazy tight set. I'm sure tonight will be a spectacle as well as it's the last show of the tour. Our good friend, photographer David Leyes ( www.davidleyes.com/ click on the D, A & I for amazing vintage video of the legend himself) is shooting the show tonight so we'll maybe get some flix out of it.

DEVO Tomorrow

I just want to say I got fuckin backstage passes to DEVO tomorrow night and Tuesday night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait. I burned some special issue DEVO smearballs DVDs 2 give to the band. It's gonna b awesome.. I'm Pum pum pum pumped !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These guys have been kickin the shit out of the world musically & vizzzually since before I was born & this is the first time in 25 years that they have been in Toronto. I got an inside peek into Mark Mothersbaugh's Mutato Muzika studio this summer by editing some video footage of a tour of the crazy facility & hope to check it out in reality one day. If i get any cool pics or vizz in the next couple days I'll be sure to post em.


John Dunsworth interview

John Dunsworth himself is easily just as awesome as the Jim Lahey character he played on Trailer Park Boys. "Stephen harper has no real imagination" - also love when he picks up the dude's pack of smokes and accuses him of being homophobic.

Wicked, Creative, Awesome, Safe

If you've ever done work for an advertising agency / marketing company, or even directly with clients on commercial projects, you may have found that there are way too many people involved in projects that could easily be executed by 1 person with a laptop. These people are often completely useless in the process & make retarded ignorant suggestions in order to justify their positions / salary. The end result is a bunch of turds taking credit for watered down projects when all they did was make it suck more by making terrible decisions. This video really nailed it. wicked creative awesome safe.

smearcam is back

registered a stickam account & fed it to smearballs.com this means smearcam is back w audio. I'll give notice & post when we go live.

Who owns the internet?

My friend Skybag & I were chopping wood downstairs & the question came up - "who owns the internet"

We did some research & found that nobody owns it but a bunch of people are policing it willy nilly like a bunch of outaws. There is the IETF

Short for Internet Engineering Task Force, the main standards organization for the Internet. The IETF is a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet. It is open to any interested individual.

I now hereby declare myself part of the IETF & part owner of the internet. I'm also joining the WWC

Bothe the IETF & the IAB have THE shittiest websites on earth.
http://www.ietf.org/

Pretty awesome that 2 of the main orgs patrolling the internet don't even use flash. It's like a shitty web ring from the 90's. See also the internet research task force . They meet monthly at a Boston Pizza for dinner and then retreat to a basement 'Dungeon' where the dungeon master will eat his takeout calamari w spinach dip & potatoe skins.



SO I think I found a pretty comprehensive draft of the current actual internet achitecture. but don't care to read through all the jibberish. The gereral drift I get from these organizations is that it's kinda like squatters rights & you can just stake claim to internet real estate. All you need is a girlfriend who works for an internet service provider & a buddy with kickas scuzzi raid servers planted all over North America & the internet is yours.

Heels & Zimerman

A old college friend started this clothing and skateboard company.... with my name in the title. I find it quite a bit weird, but also flattering. I would probably like it more if everything they were producing was mind blowing, but some of it just feels like recycled ideas. I don't want to be too harsh, some of it is great shit, like these t-shirts:





However... after writing graffiti for so many years, it is really painful on the eyes, to see weak handstyles... especially when it's your name.


Also, dolphin T, and a few others are kinda not awesome.

Maybe the "something for everyone" approach will work for them, and I'm just a butthole. If you see something you like from the site, you should buy it!

News news news


Lots of great things are happening in smearworld these days. Ken Block & DC shoes have decided to make our Gymkhana remix into an official DC video release- as a Smearballs / Davy Force artist interpretation video. I'm pretty excited about this as Mr. Force & I have put a pretty crazy video together & it's pretty cool of DC to get behind our insane nonsense. Plus we get free kickass shoes.
Here's a couple more stillz.
The full video should be online before the end of the monthish.
Also smearballs.com is going to become a reality pretty soon. Jamie is working on his own website, & I got some new vizz equipment & the whole smearballs crew is hitting the streets for a new series in the coming weeks.

Firefox - iGoogle Blend in Themes

If you are using Firefox and have an iGoogle page than maybe you would like this. I have made two themes for iGoogle and two personas for Firefox that match together.
What you need for this to work is the add-on Personas for Firefox if you are using Firefox 3.5 of less, if you are using any of the Firefox 3.6 betas or 3.7 alphas you don't need to install  it, because it's built in.

1. The Aurora Borealis/Australis Theme
       -get the Firefox persona theme Aurora Australis
       - the Aurora Borealis iGoogle theme (it's a dynamic theme as you can see elow in the screenshots)
       - and the desktop backgrounds.


2. Iris
       - get the Firefox persona Iris Leaf
       - the Iris iGoogle Theme
       - and the wallpapers can be found here (most of them are branded -Ubuntu- but there's one clean)




Enjoy the ultimate themeing.
