is this literally just an ad

Yeah. If my frustrations with multiple free image editing software has taught me anything it’s that I need intuitive and basic.

Or an install of MS paint and I could probably do a fair number of the things I want to do with my images. Damn you Mac.

I actually don’t have a drawing tablet. Everything is by hand. That’s part of why I think I have so much trouble with digital retouching and clean-up. I’m having to scan images in first which I finally have mastered but just the fact that they originated from a much messier process where there seems to be a lot more tendency to mess in the lines (blur, texture if you’re using pencil on paper, etc).

A drawing tablet is on my long term list but so is a cricut and frankly I kinda really want the cricut first.

I really really enjoy doing as much as I can by hand. I’m sure I’ll enjoy digital drawing when I try it but I get a kick out of manipulating images by, say, cutting out pieces and layering them to make compromise images— as opposed to the idea of cut and paste which is just kind of - where’s the fun in that?

A number of the pictures in my Queen Book were compiled using collage, etc. I created a bed image template and started nearly every piece off of that.

Report back to me when the company has been in existence for 5 years. The only report I am interested in is their ability to turn a profit over that time.

Dude I love this painting so much. I think it looks so realistic. The clouds are great. The tree is great and arresting.

Hey ski. I’m thinking about moving to Virginia. Any of you guys live near there? Any thoughts?

I wouldn’t move til May 19 or later - because I’m looking to buy and have a current lease and so on.

I love it at my current bank company. There’s an opportunity coming up on my team which has been earmarked for me. Long term I want to get into audit (a very related line of work to my current job) and I think it could only help me to be able to be physically present at company HQ. also, the social scene in my current city/state has started to feel really stale.

I’m a big fan of change. I’m really thinking about this seriously and leaning towards it. Housing markets around where I’d live (Richmond area) are at least as good as in DE where I am, if not more favorable to me.

Man. I guess Frodo does leave the Shire eventually. Even if I’m still in love with it. :)

Can we recruit him to Hubski? :)

This was a great article.

I have 13 copies of QUEEN completed and another 13 waiting in the wings to be completed.

In the meantime I'd been working on random paper products to beef up the store shelves on Etsy.

I think I can take a break for now except for binding Queen.

Oh. Well I do have the materials for like 4 more blank books. Or maybe graph paper ones.

Queen really needs to go first though. :)

if you'd like to peruse my wares, here i am
