I know generally speaking, the Artist of the Week should really focus on just one artist. But, when it came time to choosing a band for this post, I was torn between two. And when I started reading into the band biographies a bit more, I realized that the two bands both happened to be European metal bands. So, instead of just choosing one band of the two, I'm going to be focusing on the concept of European metal bands, specifically my two favorites: Sabaton and Sonata Arctica.
There are a lot of key dates coming up in the world of sports – here are a few notable ones:

Greetings and welcome to the first post of Pics and Tricks.
So, who is this being? Well, let's say She (the green girl, as I call her) is the embodiment of the creative urge, the right brain, or a muse. Maybe she's the goddess of the unconscious or of the universal mind, the ground source of emotion and new ideas. (I have to admit there's probably an undercurrent of my longing for spring here, as well, hence all the greenery.)
This blog is going to be about being creative, about using the tools, hardware and software, that are available here at the library to create illustrations for your publications: posters, flyers, brochures, pamphlets, greeting cards (whatever you're working on) and about creating and outputting the final publications, as well.
Both patrons and staff can ask questions, technical or otherwise, about any aspect of the process, and I’ll help you if I can—and, if I don't know the answer, I'll find out.
