Making something out of nothing at all

Things go on in my head. Lots of things that I would love to talk about. So I am starting this blog to get these things out of my head and into the world. Some will be weird. Others will be really weird. Most of the time I won't make sense, but I am putting it out there anyway.

I am also learning new things. When I was a junior and senior in high school, I took a graphic communications course. It was half day, and we learned everything that would have been needed at the time to go from preproduction to print. I learned Photoshop, I learned photography and how to develop pictures. I learned how to design and shoot a line shot. Then how to take that line shot and put it on a press and print it. It was an amazing class. Of course now, instead of Photoshop 2 it is CS5, and there are so few small scale printing presses. I wish I could go back and take that class again, with the technology of today. However I can't! So I have begun rebuilding my skills with Photoshop CS2 and I have now a Wacom tablet and Bamboo pen that I am slowly, VERY slowly, learning how to use. I am not a great drawer to begin with, in fact, I fail more times than not. But I am trying.

So while I am unveiling my new blog I am also unveiling my very first drawing and design done with Photoshop and my tablet. I am proud of it, and I am getting used to the weirdness of the tablet. Cause it is weird! I know the more i use it the better I get and well, quite frankly, I can't wait to keep trying.

So welcome to my blog!
