Twitter Link Roundup #287 – Cool Stuff Small Business, Startups, and Designers! Mike | September 18th, 2015

Glenn Keane has been a Disney animator for almost 40 years and no one can accuse him of lacking an experimental gene. He has consistently embraced new tools and new technology, and to wonderful effect. Here is Mr Keane, drawing  – in the traditional sense as well as the distinctly non-traditional. Enjoy watching him use virtual reality tools to stretch what it means to draw.

Now that your creative juices are flowing, perhaps you’d like to read a bit about what others are doing? Good! Because it’s time for the set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account)! We do love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
