Picks of the Week (DVD/Blu-ray)

DJ City and DJ Gladiator talk travel in and around Nara Prefecture

This year marks the 5 year anniversary of our trip to Japan on the AX Tokyo tour. (And I STILL haven’t edited together our trip video!

There might be a slight delay in getting out the next episode…

It’s been a busier than usual work week for me, and this weekend is shaping up to be even busier still. So it is highly likely that the next episode won’t come out until mid next week, at the very earliest… probably more like next weekend, realistically speaking. If a miracle happens and my weekend […]

“PixelPerfect” shows you how to draw and color Manga in Photoshop

Bert Monroy is one of the world’s premier digital artists. Using the Adobe Creative Suite (mostly Photoshop and Illustrator), he creates incredibly detailed scenes, “digital paintings” of a sort. They look so incredibly lifelike – so much so that someone who is not familiar with Monroy’s works would call them photographs. They are not. Every […]
