Your push back is duly acknowledged. My video series Illustrator CS4 One-on-One: Fundamentals is done, and it features the Queen of Murder rendered as both a skateboard and a surfboard. For the extreme sportz setz, don’t you know?
And now for the full story . . .
Tonight marks my last night in Ventura, California for 2008. I will miss the Holiday Inn Express and the hideously organic smells of its neighboring mushroom farms and their various malodorous fertilizers. Forgive me when I say that this very beautiful part of the world (I’m on the balcony overlooking the sweeping harbor) smells like a dead rat lodged in a very old man’s crotch. A three-day old cigar dipped in rancid butter would serve as an air freshener.
But I shall not miss the completion of my diligently comprehensive video series, Illustrator CS4 One-on-One: Fundamentals. Because I finished recording the last movie, “Sharing with InDesign, Flash, and Photoshop,” a couple of hours ago. This 170-movie series (21.5 hours before editing!) is slated to be available for your viewing pleasure as part of the massive, value-oriented, and extremely satisfying lynda.com Online Training Library in January of 2009.
My fresh-as-2009-Spring Adobe Illustrator CS4 One-on-One book is in the works as well. Will keep you posted.
Oh, btw, you will not believe the myriad ways in which multiple artboards in Illustrator CS4 (the most requested new feature every year for more than a decade) manifests itself. As a long-time vector-graphics zealot, I’ve been nothing but continually amazed. The skate- and surfboard hail from Artboard #2 of a three-page Illustrator document, ‘case you’re curious.
And never fear, Shenbop is here, this time rendered in the controversial color of purple.
Run, Shenbop, run! The queen wants to murder you! (She really does. As those of you who know know, there are so many major and minor plots associated with these things.)
