Hey everyone! I am in the middle of a flight to San Diego to teach the Creative Suite Unleashed tour with Dave Cross tomorrow (Make sure you come if youre in the area!)- 35,000 feet up in the air at that. While i’m up here, I figured it’d be a good idea to let you guys know of a couple of things that I think would really interest you:

2Humble Arts Foundation Open
Humble Arts Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that works to advance the careers of emerging fine art photographers by way of exhibition and publishing opportunities, limited-edition print sales, twice–annual artists grants, and educational programming.

Jon Feinstein sent an email over letting us know that there is an open call for women photographers for an upcoming exhibition! If you are a woman and would love to get your photography noticed, I’d definitely recommend clicking on this link to check out the cast call details for Humbles open call!. Let me know how you do!

pluginsuite5onOne Software Releases Plug-In Suite 5
I keep very few third party plugins on my computer – onOne Software is one of those that AUTOMATICALLY gets installed in my machine as soon as I install Photoshop. To that, i’m really happy to announce that they have taken it to the next level announcing the Plug-In Suite 5! For me, its the ability to be able to get things done fast that is the biggest allure. From masking to framing to effects, using onOne just makes for creative and quick – two things that I think really help me out!

In fact, we believe in this software so much, all of us Photoshop Guys actually created a series of our favorite presets for NAPP members!

To see the latest from onOne Software on their newest Plug-In Suite 5 click on this link. Great job guys!!

The 13th Annual SXSW Interactive Web Awards is happening in Austin (now one of my fav cities.. thanks to buddies Christina and Dan), March 14, 2010. SXSW is just one of those things that can’t really be described in a short amount of words. It’s an experience. Check out the video below to see what’s it all about.

The Interactive Web Awards is a subsection of SXSW and it highlights some of the best websites and really stands as the cutting edge of web showcase. Right now they are accepting entries for the Interactive Awards through Dec 18. Have a great site. Know someone with a kick tail site? Make sure they know about this:
