Color Troubles? Calibrate Your Monitor

Get Your Color Printing Correct



I recently answered a question about how to keep color consistent on computers and making prints that aren’t dark.

My answer was to calibrate your monitor. A quick, but ultimately unhelpful answer. I’ve been doing it so long, that I think everyone knows how to calibrate their monitor.

Below are links to PDFs that walk you through the process from Stephen Johnson, Will Holland and Mark Gundlach and for your Mac and PC in general.

Top Ten Must Haves for San Diego Comic-Con Survival Kit



2. Metro Transit Regional Day Passes are $5 with a Compass Card ($7 without: $5 Day Pass plus $2 for reusable Compass Card) and available from ticket vending machines

3. External Battery - Because someone else may get to a plug before you.

4. Travel Power Strip - If you do get to a plug first you share it with others.

5. Gadget Bag - Keep all your gadgets and wires nice and neat http://amzn.com/B005GD9W46

6. WhatsApp - Just found out about this app a couple of days ago. Keep connected by messages with your friends. 

7. Water bottles

8. Dress in layers - It can be freezing inside the center. It will be hot outside, so be pre parted to peel off layers as needed.

9. Wear comfortable shoes or sneakers - You will be walking a lot.

10. Buy some fruits from the supermarket - A nice healthy snack and cheaper than the expensive food inside the convention center.

Just the Blog and Only the Blog Monster

Hello my dear readers.




Things have been topsy turvy since my move. I made a lot of changes at once. Some necessary to move my career forward and others out of my control.

I will get back to my regular schedule of blogs after San Diego Comic Con. Even though my roommie backed out because an opportunity he couldn’t pass up and now I have to find another place to stay.

SDCC looks like it’s going to be exciting this year and I wouldn’t want to miss it.


In a few weeks I’l be able to share a big monster of a project I worked. It was very exciting and I was geeking out.on the inside, while being very professional on the outside.
