This is probably the coolest technology I’ve seen in years. And its hard to imagine that in a few years every artist wouldn’t be using one. Enough of a tease? Just watch….
Anyone wanna learn some iOs App Development this weekend? Particularly Cocos2D! My new 6 session course has begun. Right now only session 1 is available to download, but early next week I’ll have session 2 recorded and hopefully available. Originally I was planning to get session 1 and 2 finished before making the course available for sale, but since I JUST got an email from someone asking to get this out already, I’ll go ahead and do a pre-release for you weekend warriors… Ta-da. It has a logo….
Cocos2D will be used a lot during this course, which is basically a coding language to make things much easier (I think) to program with in Xcode. Memory management is much less of an issue and for any of you coming from an Actionscript background, you’ll love this language. Also like my previous 6 part iOs course, I’ll be releasing these sessions over a few months and if you purchase now, you will get an email anytime a new zip file is available to download.

Sweet graphic right? Chest of Draw ‘ers Design/Illustration Studio is a new collaboration of Neil and his friend Marlon, so I’m sure they’d love some fresh eyes on their work…

How fun is this…
There are some good tips though.
Two people in two days asked me to help them find animators, so if your speciality is Flash animation, feel free to leave a quick shout-out about yourself in the comments section. Just your name and where either one of these companies can find your work.
Back soon with a new lesson!
Well this is darn easy to use. I just downloaded it and within a couple minutes moved an image around a bit and saved it as an HTML5 animation. All you do is hit Save and you’ll get a whole slew of files .css, .js, .html, some Edge include files and an Edge project file ( the only thing you wouldn’t need to upload to your server when you’re done).
Its no secret I love these quick pointless polls here on WordPress. But I really am curious what my students/readers are up to this summer. I’m STILL training myself, but thats usually what I do in the summertime, although if it feels like I’m taking my sweet-ass time, I guess I kind of am. I heard someone say once, “if you want to really know the material, teach it”. Which is true, but I’d like to know the material a little bit more first. Anyway, what’re you doing?…
