New Journal 43 – Is tone mapping dead? I received an email yesterday that was just one of many communications I’ve seen this week that has been about the same thing: the idea that surreal tone mapping is becoming less popular. I won’t use the term ‘tone mapping’ as liberally as others since each software [...]

New Journal 40 –  Arriving in Portlandia We finally arrived at the fabled land of Portland yesterday. Portlandia, a comedy TV show, bills Portland as hippyville, with organic loving Eastern medicine lovers who spend their time meditating and pursuing artistic endeavors. We knew this was a stereotype. You can imagine our surprise when we arrived [...]

New Journal 36 – Progress in world of blogging A blog, for me, is a social document – an almost real-time biography in which, for the first time, the readers can affect the outcome. Unlike typical biographies which are written after-the-matter, blogs are ever-changing. They are written as you read them, as you live your [...]

In a whirlwind of rejections from bus companies who’d sold out, we found ourselves haggling [...]

New Journal Entry 4 – An Unwelcome Guest Wind lashed at our tent while rain continued to pour down, as it had done the previous 12 hours. We were alone in a Patagonian forest close to the enchanting, Laguna De Los Tres. It was midnight and I’d just been woken up by something crawling across [...]

New Journal Entry 3 – Finding internet This is my third attempt at publishing this post – the internet here is terrible! I wrote a full journal entry and didn’t save it. When I went to publish it the internet died and took with it my article. Hopefully this time it will work Tutorials – [...]

New Journal Entry 2 – Finding clarity Our future, or at least short-term future, has become clearer over the last few days in the Argentinian capital.

European Road Trip Journal Day 14 (Travel Diary Day 261) The motorway is winding steeply around, seemingly without end. The darkness makes it hard to see where we are going. Cars are passing us on the other side of the road so I can’t keep my high beems on for very long. I feel like [...]

Spanish Journal Day 3 (Travel Diary Day 257) I think Mother Nature isn’t happy with me right now. When we arrived in Valencia yesterday afternoon we were bathed in sun. 25 degrees with a slight breeze is all I ever ask for in life – we found it here. As the afternoon passed by, the [...]
