FileMaker and Cartoons? KAPOW!
Come see how cartoonist Robert Black uses FileMaker, scripting and a bunch of other tools to manage and automate the workflow of producing, publishing and promoting his cartoon strip "The Sharp End".
This presentation will not be for the faint of heart, but you'll get to peek behind the curtain of how a 'power user' wields his Mac to achieve interesting and useful outcomes in the niche of online cartooning.
Robert has been a longtime member of iMug and has presented on a number of occasions in the past, including Tinderbox—the most amazing Mac software you've never heard of (2011) and "Regular Expressions": A powerful tool you should know more about (2013). His sessions are always unusual and fascinating!
More on Robert and his work…
Through his cartoons, Robert brings a fresh perspective to strategic meetings or corporate communications, and his diverse experience and interests combine with a well-developed sense of humour to create a unique and memorable view of the world. He was also honoured to be a finalist in the recent awards for professional Australian newspaper cartoonists, The Stanleys, for his humorous strip "The Sharp End". Gadget prone to the dismay of friends and family, Robert has a long-held and deep love of all things Macintosh.
