When driving toward Chicago after the illustrators' conference I was surprised by a sophisticated moving billboard for McDonalds.

Also, while Frank is online......

Can you tell me more about morphing and Adobe After Effects that we started discussing informally at the conference?  I told my curator it was too complex for me (I checked it out via tutorials online) to learn in the time we had, but now he's got me curious about morphing.  It looked like Adobe After Effect is more for editing movies?  Is there anything less sophisiticated but still good for morphing images like the whales we were talking about at the illustrators' conference?

Subject: Re: [SCIART] cell phone art?

yes, this format has been supported/advanced since CS. if tiny art prevails, the designers among us will flourish where the detailed oriented will not. then again, the small works exhibit will see a sudden rush of entries...

        Hi Karl,

        I am now dicovering that there is a special format called SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) which is the optimal format for handheld and mobile devices.  It can be saved out of Illustrator CS2.  I am also investigating fonts and font protocols for cell phones and handhelds.  Brave new worrld of tiny art!
