Is there life beyond Photoshop? You bet!
For instance, there’s Corel Painter and Adobe Flash.
But how do you know if these programs are right for you? And how do you get started if they are?
Mike Tackett to the rescue!
At our Feb. 16 meeting, Mike will give a class for everyone who wants to get started in Flash. Think of this as Flash 101. Or even Flash for Dummies—except we’re all pretty smart, right?
Plus, Mike will be giving a demonstration of why you might want to use Painter—even if you’re already using Photoshop.
This is an all too rare appearance for one of CNW’s founding fathers. (Did you know that Mike was our first president?) So we’re hoping to get bashful Mike to show off a bit of his art as well.
Mike has worked in commercial design, animation, web design and illustration. In fact, when the creators of the forthcoming film about famous Northwest cartoonists (“Bezango, WA”) needed poster-type art, they turned to Mike.
So don’t miss this meeting. It’s got it all: tech, tips and great art!
