40 Pantone Superhero and Villains Color Swatch Poster

Some time ago I posted: 9 RGB Inspired Posters for Superhero's by Gidi Vigo, which was a pretty simple, but rather neat idea.

Gidi then had the idea of expanding this idea of linking Pantone colours with those representative of many more comic book superheros and villains.

So in this next poster, Gidi has created one poster with 40 individual Pantone swatches that are neatly tied in with the colours best associated with comic book superheros and villains.

I have finally updated ALL the Unevolved Brand answers. Each time I post a new Unevolved Brand, I will also update the list.

I realise it’s not much fun if you have to wait ages to get the answer. So hope this helps.

You should know by now that my ability to announce winners for my giveaways are rarely on time. But this time I think I have out done myself by leaps and bounds. Over a month late with the results. Incredible.

Kinda disappointed with the turnout for this one, thought more people would be interested to take part, so interesting to see what really 'turns' people on to participate in giveaways. Will stick to my usual nerdy/geeky 'prizes' next time round. :)

Installing MAMP and running WordPress locally on your Mac is a simple task, however I was unable to find any good documentation while I was attempting to do it for the first time which made it seem really difficult. My goal with this tutorial is to help you download MAMP and WordPress and have them up and running in 15 minutes.




As a means of trying to accept the inevitable  over the last few months, I have been putting together a tune together in Garageband.

I am not sure really why I did, but I did. It would make me very sad to do it, try different instruments, to listen to it time and time again, wondering if he would like it. Would always bring a tear to my eyes. I had no intention of showing it to him, more for me. But now I would like to share it...

Using orchestral and brass instruments, which was one of Dad's favourite styles of music, Big Bands and such like.




Blink
NOTE FROM GRAHAM

Since reading Malcom Gladwell's book, 'Blink' I have become considerably more comfortable in my own ability to make the 'correct' decision as a 'snap judgement', instinctual response, emotional or anger, practical or in practical, right or wrong. It would seem for me anyway that my  instinct has been proven right on many occasions which can only fill 'me' with more confidence about the 'inner workings' of 'me' as a person.

It's only if I allow time to doubt myself that it all goes horribly wrong (some would argue my whole life is horribly wrong). Malcom, through many studies and examples gives a convincing case that our instinct is 'mostly' the correct response in any given situation. It is a great book, not huge, so a easy swift read. He also has a web site, www.gladwell.com and Blog (blog is lacking in recent entries). The book will no doubt leave you feeling a lot more self assured. That's ofcourse if your instincts have generally been spot on. If not, then maybe you should give it a miss! :0)

This following study from University College of London, reinforces this understanding of the human mind.

Update: Can't believe I first posted this back in December of 2006. My, how time certainly does fly.

Searched in vain for a better quality original, but this is the best I can find.
