Available in Blue and Graphite 1280×1024

When I saw this picture of torn paper at iStockphoto, I thought it’s too good not to turn into desktop background so I bought it right away and masked away the background and put this on gradient background. If you would like different color options and/or screen size, I’m willing to do up to two popular ones as I’m pretty busy lately with several projects.

Right-click and save as:

Finally, CSSEdit 2 is out today and it is a solid upgrade. I’ve been beta-testing the app and also contributed some icons along with Jan Van Boghout’s icons. He’s such a talented artist and I love his style.

Everyone should check out the Overriding feature. Very helpful, especially for WordPress blog.

Finally after our crazy dedications (!) to the website, it’s now ready for only a few randomly selected people who signed up. They will have limited inviting power very soon. If you didn’t get an email invitation yet, have some patience, you could be in second, third or fourth round of mass email invitations soon!

Once again, this is not the event to miss if you’re a Mac user. I’ve seen some of the things they got planned and it’s going to be really fun :)

Mac Heist – From the Creators of My Dream App.

This is one of the several exciting projects I’ve been working on lately. Seriously cool events and software freebies coming for Mac OS X users, you won’t want to miss it out (trust me on that.)

The team I’m working with is the creators of hugely successful My Dream App, I’m a new addition to the team as a graphic/website designer.

Want to know the REAL Adam Betts?


Disclaimer: He was almost my twin brother but missed one vital gene.

I’m not sure if it’s cool or not to do something like this:


What do you think? Bandwidth/content hogging or that’s just how RSS reader works for some people?

[edit: It's straightened out, thanks KapitalD1 for explaining the situation. It's the way his RSS reader works.]

Remember the Mooglet Pill graphic I made a while ago? The pill in teal and white color? When client first asked me if I could try changing the pill color from blue to teal, my first thought is “Teal pill?!? Kinda odd color choice for a pill because it’s something I’ve never seen before in real life.” But I went ahead and found the right teal color to use.

Then a few weeks later, I’ve been to doctor several times for Thyroid and body checkup and apparently they found out that my real problem is panic attack, not thyroid’s low hormones (although it is a small part of the problem.) So they gave me a prescription for it and when I opened the bottle, I felt pretty lousy and laughed about it. Know why? It is 100% exact same as graphic I made.

Nifty app I found today: Ping 1.0, it’s a simple (and free!) app for compressing your png files without any quality losses. Photoshop’s PNG is the worst offender and this’ll help reduce the file size and save your web bandwidth. I got a 440 KB PNG file down to 356 KB and they’re virtually identical in graphic quality.

Completely unrelated but I had to mention this Xbox 360 deal at Fry’s Outpost.com, they’re selling Xbox 360 Premium with three games; Saint’s Row, Dead Rising and Test Drive Unlimited for $450. Original price is $560 so grab yours today before the deal expires at Oct. 17th. I got my order in. Next month, Wii and Zelda: Twilight Princess, I can’t wait :)

Overflow 2.0 from Stunt Software.

Voluntary icon design for Overflow 2, an app launcher app I’ve been using since first version and I absolutely love it. Author of Overflow modified the icon slightly so icon background color can be customized in the dock if you change the window color via Appearance preferences.

Remember the annoying “You are the Winner!” ad gif animation? They took it to the next level.

Imagine it as fully animated in Flash.
