Playing with the Wacom Cintiq

You guys know I love the whole line of Wacom products… but here is a video demonstrating why I love it. I start out with a blank canvas… and then make one random mark on it and then like a jazz musician, I let the image emerge. The ability to freehand draw but also have the ability to warp, change, distort and add other elements makes me feel like there are no limits. So I am know back to feeling like when I was a kid and had a bunch of crayons and no limits… it really is a tool that breaks down barriers to creativity… oh and it will make you faster too… but that is just a bonus! I am not getting paid by Wacom to say this, but I think these are some of the greatest devices out on the market for helping you do things better and faster. I hope you enjoy this… just a random journey through my brain and out onto the Cintiq 22HD.

Random invasion of Corey’s office

Hey guys, I thought you would enjoy a slightly random video look into the world of Corey. This video has no real agenda aside from letting you see what kind of environment he/ we work in. If you like this one… I took some more footage around the office and studios that I can post. This was shot with my Iphone 4, so don’t think that I will be winning any awards for cinematography. :D Have a great day!

Don’t forget…

As we get older… and believe me, I am feeling it more and more each day… we lose that sense of wonder and joy we had as a kid. Playing is some of the best ways to learn and relieve stress, not to mention plug into our creative cortex and discover new things about the…

The Seed of an Idea by Corey Barker

Often times when I start experimenting with Photoshop I may have a particular effect in mind and sometimes I will dive right in with a completely open mind and a blank document. I had mentioned in a tutorial post a couple weeks ago how I will often start a project that has no real purpose,…
