A fond Farewell to Inworldz’ Dragon Isle and Jammystone Park, it was a blast… (to be continued)  I think I have most of it in inventory… if not trash.

My fist SecondLife Marketplace Listing - the Shark Sub.  With Frikin’ Laser Beam option (for you Austin Powers fans).  SL is such a great creative outlet to explore design in a 3D environment.

I went and updated my San Andreas Postcard (available at the Art Gallery in San Andreas) - getting more familiar with Scribus.  To make letter-shaped image frames in Inkscape/Scribus:

  • In Inkscape type and adjust your text, then to object to path.  Save as a plain SVG.
  • In Scribus use import Vector Image - un-group it (the letters will be separate objects.
  • Now you can use the Item->Convert To->Image frame to turn the letters into image frames…  
  • IIRC I think you have to combine paths (not group)  in Inkscape first, before saving to get it so you have a single image frame consisting of all the letters…

This image consists of two SVGs, the fist of the letter frames then the second for the outlines and drop shadows.  The background is a blurred photo using the image frame in Scribus.

Now I need to take more pictures with that blur effect in mind…  :-)
