Hi-Speed Art



I've never watched a YouTube video I was tempted to actually embed on the blog, until this one: High-speed video shows Orbit books' designer Lauren Panepinto creating cover art for Gail Carriger's Blameless in 155 seconds -- and a warning for those of you who are at work, it runs with background music (link and video found over at SF Signal.)

  1. I love this video! I first saw it on Pub Rants, and I like the "oops".

  2. Is that Photoshop she's using? I have PS CS2. I've had it for oh...a year at least. I have yet to utilize much of it. I think you almost need a degree in it. So this was fascinating for me to watch.

    Thanks!

  4. Interesting how she had the covers for the first two books in on her screen, off to the side, so she could make comparisons. A series always has a certain look, and that is very much on purpose. Cool.
