Part 1: An Advanced Course in PC Hardware - $1,000 Performance PC with Style

A while back, I started a series on how to build your own PC based on my experience building my own rig.  I'm going to pick that up again, but as my build is a year and a half old at this point, I'll look at what I would build today, and what I could get off the shelf for the same price.  As I already have my gaming/graphics rig, I'll be looking at what I…

Design Studio: Project 1, Episode 3

This week was busier than I would have liked, what with tax day and Portal 2.  I did want to give you a quick progress update however. 

I tweaked some of the major areas in my deck and public turf area, refining shapes, and moving the parking slightly.  The combination of the changes create spaces that are more vibrant, draw your eye towards the areas you want to look, and have good spaces created for gardening and herbs (Sea Foam Green).…

Now that I have a site and a client, the first thing to do is to walk the site, and create a site analysis based on what the client needs and what the site and borrowed landscape provides.  My first cut at the site analysis stayed at a large scale and was somewhat bold.

This analysis was made with Sharpies on a trace sheet laid over the base map, and serves as a first…

Hey Frank, I saw your comment on the LA title thread and was inline with your train of thought, I am also a BED from the uofm and am going for my MLA there.  I was curious to see how freelancing is going, and if you found 3d rendering to be a worthwhile skill to pick up in school?  I have been playing with the idea of picking up a heavy rendering platform, but am worried about becoming "the tech guy" or "modeling guy" at a firm and not a well rounded LA.

Frank,

Glad to see your masters project posted here. The 3d graphics came out well. Care to share how you did them?

Good luck on the job hunt as well!
