As many of you might know, one of the reasons Titanium Bunker was set up was because of the work we did behind the scenes for Hoo on Who. Mike is generally responsible for day to day maintenance and cool little widgets like the packer button, Whilst I do the art.
I know what you’re thinking,
“Dave your artwork is always fun and rarely off-model, but how in the name of blue blazes do you make it?”
Oh you weren’t? well, would you like to know how I make the artwork anyway? You would? brilliant! well settle down and I’ll show you:
First off I draw the design using a pencil on standard 12 field acme punched animation paper. Why animation paper? Because I got a box of it in the corner of the room and was so handy for when I did the key to time slates.
To get artwork in to the computer in the past I used to have a flatbed scanner, but these days, its as easy to use a camera. I use an Olympus digital SLR to take the photo.
Once its on my computer, I then load up Flash . I have a template file set up with the correct dimensions I import the artwork into a lyer, resize it and then lock it. Then its time to start drawing!
I am going to be adjusting this artwork, so the final artwork you see on the podcast itself will look a little different, but thought you might like a little peek behind the curtain…
Hola from Sunny menorca. When the UK is the middle a typically bland period of weather here we are getting sunburned in extremely sunny menorca. So far we arrived Monday evening, spent Tuesday by the pool, getting my legs sun burnt, and spent most of today hanging round the Hotel. Tomorrow we are planning a trip to punto prima, and we´ll see how it goes.
Currently trying to investigate an Itunes issue with the feed for Hoo on Who, but with internet access so sporadic I´m not sure what I´ll be able to do.
Here’s a picture of the tray liner from this morning’s breakfast of champions…
Here’s the part I don’t understand:
H… is for the hours we spend each day training our staff – 16,800 on average.
There’s only 24 hours in a day so what is this 16,800 hours? Perhaps they mean man hours a day, or a month?
Enquiring minds need to know!
According to Sections 238-252 of the highway code …
You MUST NOT wait or park on yellow lines during the times of operation shown on nearby time plates (or zone entry signs if in a Controlled Parking Zone) – see ‘Information signs’ and ‘Road markings’. Double yellow lines indicate a prohibition of waiting at any time even if there are no upright signs. You MUST NOT wait or park, or stop to set down and pick up passengers, on school entrance markings (see ‘Road markings’) when upright signs indicate a prohibition of stopping.
Unless of course you’re the police and you’re doing a spot of shopping at the local ASDA.
