K-Joi is up and running again! Only the shop to be moved and linked up and as soon as that's done the remaining round of judging for the new K-Joi designers will commence! Contestants have been chatting in the forum for the last day or so getting re-acquainted with each other. It is going to be a wonderful time when things are finally ready.
The rumor on the forum is that all 4 weeks of the contest entries will be available in the shop for download as soon as the shop is opened up again. That means that there will be nearly 100 freebie kits to choose from for you downloading pleasure! Goodness you might even fill a hard drive with all the goodies there.
I just received my new graphics tablet today! WOW & WOO HOO !!!! I'm playing with it trying to figure out how to coordinate hand and eye movements. It was so simple to install and fairly simple to use as well. It is even able to do signatures, draw, annotate documents and I think I'm in heaven!
If I get good at using it I will post some doodles for you all to download. This is amazing and I can't wait to practice with it so I'm off here to see what I can come up with.
More Good news from K-Joi Studios! It should only be a few more days and everything should be on the new servers! I can just imagine that by the first of the week, that everything will be up and running! So stay tuned and I will let you know just as soon as I know that things are back in order and ready to roll.
You can also check out the K-Joi Studio blog to keep abreast of what's happening there. Kara is doing a wonderful job of keeping things posted about the change over to the new servers. I know that I can't wait for everything to be moved. She did post today that he forums will be down until they are moved so that none of the posts would be lost.
I just know that all of the designer contestants, the Joi-De Vivre, are on pins and needles with anticipation for the announcement and go ahead for the final round of voting. Everything has been turned in and the voting will begin as soon as the forum is moved and enabled. Oh My! The waiting is soooo hard!! LOL!
I do have to apologize to anyone that downloaded the kit before today. I had saved all the files in PSP format. I have changed the files now and they will work in either PSP or Photoshop. Thankfully a very nice lady pointed this out to me so I could change it.
This was one of the first kits I ever made and was pretty green as a designer about how to save things for downloading. The file is much smaller now and will work in PS. Again I apologize for the inconvenience.
Just a little note to let you know that K-Joi is moving to a new hosting company and may experience some down times in the process. Kara is working madly to get things smoothed out for everyone and I know she won't stop until things are back to normal. She has started a blog to keep everyone updated to the progress of the move. When you follow the link be sure to click on the blog "leaf" to see the newest entries.
In the mean time I will go ahead and post a freebie for everyone here that I made some time ago, but never offered to the public.
