I'm producing a short Flash piece and am looking for inspiration. Could you point me to examples of good < 1 minute, basic promotions that artfully weave text motion with good music and photography/video? Not looking to get interactive here, just a simple but intriguing, inspiring motion piece.

I am looking for the name of a graphic artist who was featured in DWELL early this year. From the 50's (more or less), very modern and minimal drawings of insects and nature. It is a man, and I am pretty sure he was American. Anyone know this?

I'm looking for a goofy 50s-esque TV graphic that showed a station technician sitting at a console with either video tape or film wrapped around his body, and spilling onto the floor - TV stations used to show it when they were having 'network difficulties' [more inside]

I like to learn things, but textbooks are boring! I find comic books gripping in ways that normal books aren't. Can you all offer examples of educational, information-rich comic books (or, if you prefer, "graphic novels")? [more inside]

Has anyone done an epistolary comic book? It's not obvious to me how such a project could work and I'm interested in seeing what, if anything, artists have done with the form. I'm also interested in recommendations for good epistolary novels. I've already looked at the wikipedia page on epistolary novels and I plan to read some of the novels mentioned there.

In regards to design and press printing. Towards the bottom of this Paper Specs

Is anyone familiar with this technique and care to elaborate on how it is accomplished and the effect it has on the final piece? [more inside]

Help me impersonate a graphic designer! I know it’s kind of insane, but as early as this afternoon I may receive the proverbial offer (well, assignment) that I can’t refuse, and I’m wondering if anyone might be able to offer some fake-it-till-you-make-it tips for this sort of project (a short catalogue for a half-dozen or so boutique products). See, the thing is, I'm not a designer, although I have some experience with Quark, Illustrator and Photoshop. I’m most interested in a list of ten or fifteen things that you talented designer folks do over and over again that seem impressive to the uninitiated, but that are simpler than they appear to we of the untrained eyes. Books are also fine, but due to the potential immediacy of this, the shorter the tutorial, the better. [more inside]

I have the opportunity to buy an used x Wacom intuos graphics tablet to use with my photoshop program. It would cost about $85.00 with shipping. It is being offered on e-bay without the software that the owner says is free to download from the Wacom site. My question is to those of you with Wacom experiance, would it be better for a newbe to go for the more expensive (new) wacom to take advantage of the provided software and hard copy instructions or do you think a person that is reasonalbly technologically proficient with computers / downloading etc. be able to get up to speed using advice typically found on the internet? Thank you...

Graphicdesignerfilter: With the rise of Indesign and to a smaller extent, Scribus
as major page layout applications, is anyone else underwhelmed by new, revolutionary features? What features would you like to see in page layout apps that currently don't exist? I'm not talking about improvements to current applications, but something totally new that will make the practical and/or creative end of page layout better. [more inside]
