abstract vector art

This is an illustration I did after finding a cool tutorial on the Web Designer Wall blog that I read.

Happy Friday!

a quick touch-up

James Wang (a photographer and friend) posted a great blog entry about touching up faces in photoshop. He used Edward James Olmos as his (perfect) example. My subject doesn't have nearly the same need for touching up so I had to be super subtle.



The major difference between this version and Edward James Olmos is the stubble and bangs. I had to be careful to mask the effect around the hair - seeing blurry bangs was giving away that I had touched up the photo. Still, this took me less than 5 minutes. Fun!!

new purse!

Spring is here. Time for a new purse. Isn't it fabulous? I got it today at TJ Maxx which is so unlike me. I'm learning to embrace my occasional girlyness.

I like the combination of black with brown and cream highlights. And the clean lines.
