New Page of Sizzlin’ Resources

Need some inspiration? What about advice for that problem in Illustrator you’ve been having? Maybe you just need a new photoshop brush to put the finishing touches on that project? Well, I just created a new resource page! It’s a list of sites that I feel could be useful to designers, photographers, architects, artists, or anyone in the creative/technical field. It includes blogs that offer tips and advice, tutorials, freebies and more. For about a year now, I’ve been collecting sites either by bookmarking or adding to my Google reader. So making this page has also helped me get a little more organization to the madness. Which reminds me of another resource Xmarks (syncs and backs up your bookmarks). My resource list is definitely not the end-all-be-all of resources, so I look forward to finding more. There’s so much great stuff out there on the world wide web. Do you have a site/resource that you’d like to share? Leave a comment on my Resource Page.

Design Inspiration: Media Militia

I StumbledUpon this blog and while searching through it I was immediately impressed and inspired. Media Militia is loaded with quality resources like Tutorials and Freebies. Download high grade textures, brushes, vectors, and images, even a few abstract renders. They encourage personal and commercial use. I felt like a kid in a candy store! The content is pretty straightforward, so the posts are easy to read through. I also found them extremely informative; within ten minutes I learned 3 new techniques (although an expert I am not).

Also, be inspired by their inspiration. Media Militia has a section dedicated to work they find stimulating. You can follow them on Twitter (if that’s your thing), subscribe to their feed (my thing) or even submit your own work.  Media Militia gets 2 thumbs up. Check it out!
