Per ardua, ad astra

Recently I wrote about the flyers I created for the R3PLAY Arcade, Retro and Video Gaming Expo that’s going to be held in Blackpool on the 6th and 7th November 2010. Here’s Doris Speed holding an example:

Some people are so easily pleased

At the same time as I put flyers together, I also prepared two half page magazine advertisements to appear in retroGAMER and gamesTM magazines.

This was a very exciting job for me, as I’ve always wanted some of my work to appear in a computer magazine, and retroGAMER was a magazine I used to buy regularly when I lived in the UK.

The fliers were produced as large uncompressed TIFF files. I exported large PNG files from the Inkscape source file and then converted them into TIFFs using The GIMP.

I was delighted this morning when Dave Moore, one of the organisers of R3PLAY, sent me a picture of the adverts appearing in the magazines themselves.
