How to make a letter float in 3D – Video No.251


Pin Koro shows us how to draw a letter so that it appears to float in 3D. The time lapse video takes less than 3 minutes to demonstrate the creation of this optical illusion. There aren´t any explanations just listen to the music instead. The technique is also known as anamorphosis.

Hope you like my choice of the day.

Marialena Sarris – Featured Artist

painter Marialena Sarris

Marialena Sarris

Marialena Sarris studied painting in Athens, Greece. She loves beautiful subjects which are pleasing to our eyes. Many of her works are portraits of people and animals, flowers and starry skies but she also creates very impressive still lifes. Marialena prefers watercolours as her favourite medium.

Weather permitting Marialena will go out to paint en plein air. She also runs an interesting blog with numerous product reviews about art materials and her work experience.

Marialena Sarris kindly agreed to becoming the latest addition to my Featured Artist page. I admire her realistic creations very much.

Everyone including art collectors will love her work.

Here is a link to her website.

Shop Function Repaired

Providers often don´t realize the problems they are causing us. Everything had been fine until recently. It would have been nice to have been informed about software changes on my domain which led to me losing orders. I also contacted the software people who sold me the online shop as I did not know which one of them was responsible, the domain provider or the software people.

After the software changes order acknowledgements on my shop only went out to my customers without sending me a copy. So I was unaware of any orders and the customer will have been wondering why he was not receiving any goods. I only found out about the problem when a customer contacted me via a separate email about an order he had placed via my website.

In order to rectify the problem I had to register a new email on my domain with a link diverting mails to my personal email account. It only worked after several failed attempts and numerous changes in my domain and email settings (trial and error). Thank goodness it´s alright now.

Has anyone ever experienced anything like it? Please, let me know.
