Yeah, I got this opportunity and here I am in South Africa, precisely in Cape Town where I will stay for more 4 days. After that I will go to Johannesburg and back to Brazil. Cape Town is really beautiful, I have already visited some of the most famous turistic spots like Cape Point, Table Mountain, Waterfront and a lot of other places in downtown.

Nowadays we can have access to pretty much everything, and even for those like me, who don’t have the opportunity to attend to design events such as @media, sxsw, dconstrukt and others, we have the chance to listen to them via podcasts or using Odeo. The truth is, there are lots of excellent speeches to listen to.
It’s always good when we find some things we thought we had lost. Last week I was checking some backup CDS and I found some old illustrations, which were from 2002-2003. The illustrations were for some work i did for a friend of mine who was living in Perth, Australia. I don’t know what he did with the, but it was a good money.
When it comes to the web, everybody is pretty much used to flash. However there’s a new technology which allows us to play 3D games in our browsers with somewhat close to Playstation 2 graphic quality. Some weeks ago I met some guys that were developing a game using a 3D plugin called Virtools.
This week I had to create a new Business card for my company, ZEE. I have to say, this sort of work, like creating a business cards, is not as easy as some people think. Actually it’s pretty hard to condense our business to a size of a business card.

After one month traveling I’m back and trying to get back to my routine. First of all, I’d like to thank all comments and emails about the blog and the tutorials. Now talking about Photoshop, I started using the new CS3 programs on my mac and I have to say, they are really faster, and I can finally use the Illustrator more often.
Another week has gone and I must say, it was the best week of them all. After Venice we spent the night on the train and wisely we chose Couchette instead of seat, that means, we slept pretty much well. Arriving in Vienna we walked around the city, very beautiful and organized.
After one week we have visited Nice, Monaco, Rome, Pisa and Florence. The only thing I have to say is, we have enjoyed a lot our trip and I dont have clean clothes to use anymore lol.Nice and Monaco are really beautiful, Nice with its charm and Monaco with the most amazing cars ever, Ferraris, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Mclarens, shit I have never seen so many cars like that before.
It´s been more than a week without posting anything, that´s because I´m on vacations. I´ve already visited some cool places like Lisbon, Madrid and Barcelona. Now we´re going to Nice in France and after that Italy, Prague, Vien and lots of places...Thanks for the comments about the tutorials and the new design.
Last night I finished the transition to the new version of my blog. It's been like 4 months since the first release, although I really liked the previous version, I had to make some adjustments in the design.When I designed the first version, I had no idea about who would read it, if someone would read it.
I've been working with Photoshop for some time now. I really like the software and what can be achieved using it. What amazes me more is the quality of works that were done using it. There are people who really know how to push the boundaries of the tool and produce astonishing pieces of work.
Since my last article on how to create smoke generated lots of traffic, I decided to write another one on some of the photoshop effects. Although I use Photoshop on a daily basis, I am by no means a photoshop expert. Well what I want to show here is how to create a nice light and magic effect.
Lately I have been working with my brother on a promising project. Actually I shouldn’t even been talking about that now, but it’s necessary to say some things. Basically it’s all about CSS, it’s really cool, and it's called Wedeed. Anyway, what he asked me to do was the logo and later its GUI.
