Bob Staake: Photoshop 3.0

Monday 7 January 2008

Jeff Atwood skewers developers for being distracted by the latest tools. He's right. As technology lovers, we believe the latest technology will be far better (faster, easier, produce better results) than older technology.

Illustrator Bob Staake has made some videos showing how he creates his drawings, like many artists do these days. Unlike most artists, though, Bob uses Photoshop 3.0. Yes, 3.0, the same program he's been using since 1995. His input device? A mouse. This proves the adage that a good craftsman never blames his tools, and that it's not about what you have, it's about how you use it.

But of all tools to demonstrate your point, Photoshop, however old, is total overkill for what he's trying to do. You can do most of those "drawing" techniques in Microsoft Paint(brush).
