Browsing around YouTube I stumbled upon this guy Mike McHugh. His YouTube description reads this:

Mike McHugh is Australia’s top Adobe Creative Suite Trainer, and is an Adobe Ambassador. Also the Author “How to Wow with InDesign CS2” and “How to Wow with Photoshop Elements”. And now a great new Podcast Creative SWEET TV. If you are looking for onsite training you have come to the right place.

He has a nice set of videotutorials (36) relating to some of the niftier tips and tricks with the Adobe Creative Suite (Also known as Adobe CS) and Adobe Creative Suite 3 (also known as CS3). Mike has made an effort of showing some of his tips ‘n tricks in his podcasts, and although he commonly uses quite ugly examples to show them, they are quite interesting.

Christophe Huet

Christophe Huet, a man who’s photomanipulating skills are quite interesting. But the most interesting reason I posted about him, is because he shows how he does it. In a few steps he shows you image from start to finish, showing where he began, and where he ended.

Check it out yourself. Not interested in knowing how? Then just check out his portfolio; it looks good anyways.

Illustrations of a futuristic world, as thought of in the 1930’s – 1970’s. No American space comics, but the lesser-known images from Russia and other European countries.

A nice example on how to use illustrations to make an INTERESTING videoclip with it. It plays nicely with color, a bit of type, and masking and moving illustrations / icons.
