Just finished this mockup for a Tumblr blog. I’ll probably change it around a bit more, but for the most part I’m happy with it. You can see it on the blog here. themotorcycledude.tumblr.com.
Blog header graphic for themotorcycledude on tumblr.
The pin up girl clipart was a digital download from Payloadz. I purchased a whole bunch of clipart the other night with a liberal license and a decent price. I’ll do a clipart review soon, and post a referral link for anyone that might be looking for some pin up clipart.
I’ll be blogging a lot more for the new year and sharing a lot of my finds as I search for graphics, fonts, images, and other interesting stuff for design work. I just came across a great collection of dingbats at dafont.com
If you’re not familiar with dingbat fonts, they’re just little pieces of clipart that you can use in your scrap-booking, and banner designs. When you load them the characters on your keyboard turn into clipart images instead of letter and numbers. I love playing with dingbats. I did a basic video on the basic use of dingbats. It’s a bit old, but the info is still relevant if you’re not familiar with using them.
I’m going to try and create at least one video tutorial per week. This week I created a quick video tutorial that shows how to use dingbats to make quick graphics and buttons in gimp. The font or dingbat used for this tutorial can be downloaded for free here :
Things have been a little crazy around here. I’ve been working on a lot of cryptocurrency related projects and have really ignored this blog. I should be posing regularly here again. I think things are going to be changing around a bit and will probably be posting a lot of scrap booking and graphics tutorials along with the occasional snippet of code. Hope to talk to you soon.
