Today we visit with Sebastian Bleak,
Sebastian Bleak is a Graphic Scientist, Training and Support Lead at Astute Graphics, makers of award winning, time saving plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator. Although he specializes in Adobe Illustrator, his focus is on the Creative Cloud workflow for Graphic Designers.
Follow his weekly project “Never Stop Learning” where he study’s up on different Adobe tools and shares his findings with the design community. He has been at it for over 220 weeks and the majority of tools studied are in Photoshop and Illustrator.
This weeks pixeLobby podcast we talked to Nathan Wilkerson. Nathan’s native art is done by hand and then he brings it into autocad and does his magic there. He is a perfectionist. So much so that he assists the screenprinters on making sure they align things perfectly for the tshirts. He designs Tshirts, Art cards, Digital prints that are matted, decals for automobiles.
When someone tells Nathan it cannot be done he does not take that for an answer. He will work to find a way. He is also known for not only finding a way but the most efficient with the best quality. As an engineer it helps him think outside of the box too. Like when he started hand carving canoes and working on totem poles - he then would discuss new ways on how to do the projects.
