The art of the gif


GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format. It is pronounced as the word as “jif” with a soft “G“. GIFs have been around over 30 years. Back in the mid to late 90s, at the dawn of the Internet age, GIFs were tacky little clipart images that moved skittishly, often scattered across sites.

The Maglus Black is back

“I’ve been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colors was black,” said Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

But what makes black such a dominant colour?

First of all black is physically a dominant colour as mixed with any colour black will overpower it. Black can turn yellow into a murky dark mustard, the smallest amount of black can reduce red to a deep wine colour

Black has a wide range of associations. It can be linked with death, magic, and darkness, but it can also symbolize elegance, wealth, restraint, and power.

Black is the first colour ever used by artists in prehistory and the first ink used in early texts. Black played an important role in the development of art.

Black is the king of all colours.

How to create hand-drawn text on the iPad!

Drawing text by hand is hard, but it gives a really personal touch to any digital art piece. It can also be an easy way to personalise any photo digitally. I find the hardest thing is keeping consistent spacing between my letters, but I’ve found a great way to get around that.

Read on for my simple guide to making gorgeous hand-drawn text on the iPad easily, using a Maglus Stylus. And it’s nearly December, so why not be generous – I’ve included a voucher for a free Christmas gift from Maglus Stylus to you, the offer code is at the end of the post 🙂
