Chubby Rain. That was the somewhat Daryl Askey feeble, but amusing name of the fictional Art Director & Editor of the mag – also movie Steve Martin’s character despereducator, designer, music producer, and ately tries to produce in the actual movie more! Bowfinger. Bowfinger was not the most memorable film of 1999 (the Internet Movie Database has it rated at 6.4 out of 10), but it still gives Alejandro Palacios me a chuckle when I think about it. Another comical name in the movie is “Mind Head.” It occupied an important part Digital artist and photo of Eddie Murphy’s movie-star character’s life as the new-age editor extraordinaire. therapy organization to which belonged.

Start Your New Year Off by Trying New Things
The vast opportunity, the shear enjoyment, and the incomparable satisfaction; all are considered in my conclusion that “Snowboarding” has become my favourite Winter Sport. As an inexperienced snowboarder, it has definitely been an exciting ride feeling it out for this new found personal interest. The best part of everything is that my exposure to the craft has just commenced. Following this interest has expanded my mind and allowed me to gain confidence in my abilities. As it all started, being twenty years old and trying something new was definitely not a new thing but turned out to be a very good experience nevertheless. I learned a lot from falling, on multiple occasions, but getting back out of the snowpack and prevailing. It was funny to struggle like a baby taking its first step; or a child riding a bike reduced to two-wheels. However in this scenario it was more like a man tumbling, unprepared without a clue, from top to bottom down the side of the strangest terrain he had ever come across. This was attempt 1.
On attempt 2, the excitement was peaked as it had been almost 365 days from the last outing. The rush began for me the moment my eyes opened that morning. Off to Cypress Mountain for a full day was exactly what was needed. Choosing to get an instructional lesson was a great investment in terms of grasping the method quickly. A short two hours later, I felt as though I had gained so much and was able to improve from my attempt the year before. I was hooked. After a good couple of runs I felt as though the day was complete and before we even reached the city that evening, I was aching for more. This expanded me whole-heartedly into a fan and an addict. Since the beginning of the 2010-2011 Season I’ve been able to get out and enjoy 3 more gorgeous days at Whistler Blackcomb and will be fitting in one last run for the end of April. The culmination of my best snowboarding year (and technically my first one) will definitely mark many positive changes for me. It has helped to progress my development in my confidence level, my enjoyment of outdoor activities, and in my belief that I am capable of more than I may have thought once upon a time. So if this sparks any type of interest or emotion, curiosity or disbelief, I must insist: “Join me for the 2011-2012 Season as it promises to be the next Great Year of Snowboarding!”

Create an Oil Painting in Photoshop
Issue #1> Line & Sinker >HOW TO >11
In this tutorial we will turn a photograph into an oil painting, the image used here can be found at Stock.xchng (http://www.sxc.hu/ photo/1302152).
The first step after opening the image in Photoshop is duplicating the layer by going on Layer menu > Duplicate layer, so you donâ€™t work on the original image.
With the duplicated layer selected go to Filter > Artistic > Paint Daubs, the default settings should work fine, but you can play around with the sliders if you want or if you are using a different image. Click OK, now the photo already looks a little more like a painting.
Duplicate the layer, then apply Filter > Stylize > Glowing Edges, again, the default setting should work, click OK.
Invert the colours by pressing CTRL+i (Command+i on Mac), desaturate by pressing SHIFT+CTRL+u (Shift+Command+u on Mac) and change the layer blending mode to Darken, this will give the photo a nice outline.
>12 >HOW TO > Line & Sinker > Issue #1
Now itâ€™s time to start painting, create a new layer and name it Cherry 01 (or any name you find easier to organize your layers).
Select the Smudge Tool from the Tools Panel, change your Brush Library to Dry Media Brushes and choose Flat Blunt with Texture. Set Strength to something between 70% and 75% and check the Sample All Layers box.
Start painting the cherry on the foreground, following the direction a real paint brush would. Paint each part of the photo in a different layer, repeating the steps above.
After every element of the photo is painted, create a composite of all layers by pressing SHIFT+CTRL+ALT+e (Shift+Command+Option+e on Mac).
Apply Filter > Sketch > Bas Relief, click OK and change the blend mode to Overlay, this will give more depth to the brush strokes.
Issue #1> Line & Sinker >HOW TO >13
Thatâ€™s it, you made an oil painting out of a photo in just a few steps. Now, try using a different image, with different settings for the filters.

Interview LaSalle Vancouver has had many notable students over the years. This year is no exception. Here we present three exceptional future fashion designers studying here right now…
Nicole Barron — Why did you decide to study here?
I’ve been sewing for the majority of my life; it’s in the family, and I started doing bridesmaid dresses for a friend’s wedding, and I started doing home furnishings. I was working a dead end job; I decided that I needed to go back to school. So I looked around at schools in the area, but I’m from Victoria and there’s not really a lot there, so I decided to move to Vancouver to find something with a little bit more history and background that’s more recognized throughout the world.
You can go anywhere, like Australia and its recognized. ”
So I decided to come to LaSalle to do the fashion design course to learn. I liked that LaSalle wasn’t a long four-year course, and that it has locations all around the world, you can go anywhere, like Australia and it’s recognized. The tuition and the hands on experience made it a really easy decision for me. In the end I didn’t want to end up doing a bunch of book work.
— Can you recommend any of your favourite professionals? Well my idea of professionals the worlds idea of professionals are two totally different things. I look a lot to following people my age, and people that would be in my range so I did an internship earlier on in my schooling for a man that used to train under Galliano, so he’s got really good experience, but he’s just starting out so it’s really inspiring to see someone young trying to get out there and trying to make it, so I follow him but he’s not from Canada. And of course I look a lot to my peers, I follow my classmates, they’re really inspiring, we have a really great class here. There’s so much to follow that I can’t really name one person, but I do love Chanel, Chloe, Celine, and Jil Sander, but nothing specifically Canadian.
Brittany Wacher — What is your process of creation? I think I had my inspiration from everyday life, different aspects of just simple everyday life, watching other people living in my life. I think that’s the most inspirational thing possible. When I have to start, I’m really into melting wax crayons and using pastels right now to get my ideas going.
I had my inspiration from everyday life, ”
— How would you describe your style? My style is lots of colors, mismatched materials and fabrics. It’s kind of an array. An organized mess maybe. Something like that.
Andrea Hillbrecht — What inspires you? Well the inspiration for my current collection is driftwood; I don’t know why I chose it, maybe the texture. So it’s a more visual aspect rather than any sort of abstract or situational concept. I think most of my stuff is chosen to be designed by something I find visually stimulating.
— How is the Fashion Program improving your skills? It’s definitely given me a sense of structure to my design process; it’s certainly refined my skills. I came here with a fair amount of sewing experience, but learning the proper technical way of doing something makes such a difference. Your stuff can go from looking really great on a hanger to looking great on a hanger and a body.
The Whim of the Masses
Photographer Alejandro Palacios Itâ€™s hard to believe that humans hate pain, misery and hardship so deeply that they reach a point where they put their lives on the fire, when you consider that they put so much into the entertainment desire.
