"Battlefield Revisited", the story of the Battle of Imphal during World War II in India, appearing in this month’s issue of National Geographic Traveller India. I have to say, this was one of my favorite assignments to work on EVER. Such an interesting piece, about a part of WWII history that is not often discussed. Special thanks goes out to my AD Diviya Mehra and Editor-in-chief Niloufer Venkatraman, who were wonderful to me.
Yesterday I had the great fortune of getting to play with Adobe’s new Ink and Slide hardware for tablets, and I have to say it was AMAZING. I know some people might be hesitant at first to be like “Adobe is trying to do hardware? Get real buddy.” But really, it was only a matter of time before SOMEONE was going to make a really good stylus…and something that’s not just the usual faire. Adobe really went out of their way to make a system that is both intuitive but also inventive. I mean Ink & Slide essentially make you wish you have like a GIANT iPad. And while some might see that statement and be like “uhhh, it exists, get a Cintiq”, that’s not the point; Ink & Slide accomplish feats that Cintiq isn’t going to have in any of their products…well…until they try to do their own version of the Ink & Slide stuff. Then of course there’s the new software, Adobe Line and Adobe Sketch. I tell ya, you’ve just got to go play yourself, it’s so dope! I enthusiastically recommend it.
