More Digital Shizzle


I finished another digital work the other day; this one is entitled: "Crowds."

This incorporates some photos I took during a Harlem Wizards game a local school was hosting as a fundraiser (they also raised a lot of fun at that game, nyuck, nyuck). I then layered and traced these pics in Illustrator CS4 before creating the border.

I have over 700 pictures from that game, so I will have lots of creations potentially stemming from that one event.

Virtually Painting

I have recently been trying to get into creating more digital projects lately (although I am still painting the "old-fashioned" way too). Here is one of the first completed digital projects. It's called "The Source of My Dementia" (2009).

All the work needed to create this image was done in Photoshop CS4. I thought it might be fun to manually merge some photos I'd taken of my messy studio. As I spent more time on this project, I became intrigued with the idea of revealing an inner space after I noticed I could create a gateway from music stands.

I only used four photographs, but each one was duplicated at least twice to create the effect I was going for. This work provided a nice alternate from another painting I have been developing. I look forward to exploring other digital projects, and, as soon as some are finished, they will be posted here as always.
