EPL luckiest player who's not a striker

Cristiano Ronaldo newspaper graphic illustration
Done by yours sincerely.

To score 35 goals in a season when you're not a striker is, well, amazing. Luck also helps, when you can even score goals by flicking.

Hong Kong Style Nike

Very interesting advertisement that appeared on the back page of The Newpaper. The Hong Kong style reminds me of the comics I use to read.

This is their website.

My Worst Nightmare

I had my worst nightmare ever.

When I woke up, I realised it was 2pm.

I had to go to work at 5pm which means I have to leave home around 4pm. That leaves me around an hour of free time for myself.

For no good reason, I couldn't get out of bed and went back to sleep!

The next time I woke up, it was 8.30am, on the same day!

I value time a lot. And I will not ever forget this nightmare.

Tip: Using Blending Modes on Tevez

Software: Adobe Illustrator

This is how I change the colour of the jersey when I need to. I use blending modes from the Transparency palette.

First, fire up the Transparency palette. You can hit the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+Shift+F10, or select it from the menu, Window->Transparency.

You'll noticed I've created some shadows on the jersey. Those are actually grayscale swatches of 20K.

These 20K swatches are not gray because I have changed their mode to Multiply from the drop box. There are many ways to blend objects. I usually use blending mode or change the Opacity level by the side.

Once they are blended, I can change the colour of my jersey as simply as selecting it and clicking on a colour swatch.

The shadows will blend with the new colour.

Brotherly Love

Something that I did at work for Friday's paper.

Fernando Torres has just scored yet another hat trick. The graphic was to show the events after the match. Gerrard took the ball from the referee and handed it over to Torres

Getting ERP

Don't they have any economist?

People who already have cars will never take public transport. Sure it's more expensive with the ERP, but it's even more expensive to give up your car to take public transport. You'll have to sell your car at a loss in the secondhand market.

Number of cars on the roads will be fixed. ERP just moves them to other roads. Isn't that how the ERP is suppose to work?
