Gender: Male
Artist Mitchell Davidson Bentley spent the last 20 years moving physically from place to place and artistically from traditional oils to cyber compositions. Trained in the traditional medium of oil by his mother, and inspired by his grandfather’s love of science fiction, Bentley began his career as a full-time science fiction artist in 1989 from his home base in Tulsa. While actively involved in the science fiction art world, Bentley also moved from Tulsa to Austin to Central Pennsylvania where his search for knowledge earned him bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Penn State University. Over the same period of time, Bentley shifted from the more traditional oil painting to airbrushed acrylics, and since 2004 has been working exclusively in electronic media.
As art director of Atomic Fly Studios, Bentley produces cover art, marketing materials and Web sites while he continues to produce quality 2D artwork marketed through the AFS Web site and at science fiction conventions across the United States.

Bentley has lectured at universities, worked in film, edited publications and served as Artist Guest of Honor at more than a dozen science fiction conventions. He has also earned 35 awards, is a lifetime member of the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists and is serving as President.
He currently resides in Harrisburg, PA with his partner Cathie McCormick and their two cats, Spike and Zöe. Bentley’s Web address is:

Impossible for me to rate at this point since it is not compatible with Lion. This is a PPC program and will no longer work above 10.6.x

4 clicks to get to the actual download... Really? What's the point there?

At least it looks like an update finally.

Troll much? 1/2 star for what? Having a program? Perhaps I should have said, "evaluate" instead of rate. Feel better now? Freakin' language Nazi.
Turning off notices now - my comment was back a few, so really not interested anymore. Movin' on...

This app looks like it does have some interesting features that others either don't have or have buried, and it is a bit cheaper than the retail price of either Quark or InDesign.
However, I am confused by some of the comments here - I mean, why would you even want this app if you already have one of the "big guns" that are already established as industry standards? Sure, ID CS2 & CS3 are a few versions behind, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with them and they pretty much do it all. Especially if you also have the design suite which interacts easily between all of the programs - automatically updating changes made in Photoshop for instance.
Where is the benefit of spending money on and learning yet another app that printers may have a harder time dealing with if it is not an industry standard app they are familiar with?
A curious designer wants to know...
