Photo Editing Gig

For the past couple months I’ve been working a photo-editing job, working on old family photos for an estate. The work is pretty interesting, and I really like my coworkers. We do crazy amounts of scanning and then have only a few minutes to retouch each photo. It’s really helping me get faster with Photoshop, and a lot of the photos are very old, and therefore really interesting.

I’ve also been working for the past couple days on an illustration of Kate to give her for her birthday. It’s an important one, so I’m spending extra time perfecting all the vectors in Illustrator. I also made a pretty cool pattern for the background. She already knows that I’ve been working on it, so it’s ok for me to talk about, but I can’t upload it until I actually give it to her, you know, surprises and all.

Blog Ho!


So my friend told me that it would be a good idea to keep a blog. Blogging has always seemed to be sort of a strange thing to me, like people talking to themselves. But he said it would be good to show potential clients what I’ve been up to, and also to keep records for myself of my learning process. Sort of a combination of talking to myself and to other people.

Well, here goes, I doubt if anyone is reading this, but if you are, I hope you enjoy it.
