Bob Staake Illustrations, Photoshop 3.0

Bob Staake creates digital illustration in Adobe Photoshop 3.0 and shares it with the online community.  In a recent online interview, suggested that “to say Bob Staake is just an illustrator is like saying ‘The Beatles’ were just a bunch of musicians; the title doesn’t do the artist justice” and Publisher’s Weekly commented that “Bob Staake’s modern, crisp illustrations … practically jump off the page”


So, what hardware is Bob running? “Mac G5 1.8 GHz, Snapz Pro x 2.1.2 (running trial right now — maybe they’ll give me the full version) ps 3.0 running in classic. I only work in ps 3.0 ” says Bob. “No layers, but a mouse, keyboard and plenty of caffeine.”

Ah, but Adobe Photoshop 3.0… I continue to work in the program even although I have Adobe Creative Suite 2 on my G5. For me, the familiarity of Photoshop 3.0 keeps me locked into the program, even though my son says the days are officially numbered given that the classic program won’t physically run on the new dual processor Macs (and being an Apple employee, he should know).

These mini-process movies were created using Snapz Pro X for the Mac (Get Snapz Pro X in this weeks MacHeist bundle). Each of these short exercises can be viewed on his website at or at YouTube.
