Photoshop To Illustrator: A Workflow For Textile Artwork

Written by MO on . Posted in Color Correction

Introduction

On October 2nd, I participated in the FESPA Digital Textile Conference in Milan. 160 attendees from all over the world gathered to listen to presentations whose themes would range from the current market trends  to economical analysis, from case studies to production techniques. In July, I had the privilege and the pleasure to be invited as one of the fourteen speakers of the day. Given the nature of the audience, I was looking for some subject that could be of real interest for the textile community, so I proposed the premiere presentation of a technique, later evolved into a proposed workflow, aimed at recovering and manipulating patterns and motifs designed with traditional screen printing in mind, with an eye at the flexibility of the modern digital workflow which is quickly taking over.

FESPA were delighted and gave me carte blanche, so I set to study and refine the proposal. This long article opens it to the public for the first time after my DTC presentation.

Last May, I participated in FESPA Digital in Munich (D). FESPA is a global federation of 37 national associations for the screen printing, digital printing and textile printing community. The leading exhibitions and conferences in the field are organized by FESPA and the profits are re-invested.

The Mask Ghosts Through

Written by MO on . Posted in Sharpening

I’ve been one poor writer, lately, and I apologize for this. A swarm of workshops and courses took its toll in late spring and I am only starting to take control of my time again. I come back to this blog exactly two months after the last article, hopefully with something you may find interesting.

Which Color Is The Red Planet?

(This article was originally released on marcoolivotto.com on September 9, 2012. It was the first article I wrote in English for that blog.)

So… a new start!

All the original articles in this blog were originally written in Italian, yet I received enough requests to translate them into English that I decided to oblige. I start from this article which, curiously, was the most impromptu article I ever wrote: someone posted something in the CCC – Color Correction Campus group on facebook and when I saw it I went into Auto Write mode. The whole thing was written in less than a couple of hours. If you’re interested in what it is about, read on.

About a month ago, namely on the 6th of August, the vehicle called Curiosity Rover (AKA MSL – Mars Science Laboratory) landed on Mars after a trip of about eight months. Among the scientific equipment it carries, the vehicle sports MastCam, an image capturing system which is actually formed by two cameras able to produce stereoscopic views. Dario Giannobile made a post on the CCC facebook group, pointing to an article which undoubtedly contains a reference to an operation of color correction performed on an image (in color) sent to the Earth by the Curiosity Rover.
