ArTography


One of my favorite activities is working with images my own, clip-art, or collected art from old ephemera, etc. Whether it is with Photoshop or Illustrator, or any of the plethora of image editors that have become available for our mobile devices and tablets, I take great delight in this process. It can be as simple as tweaking a photo to bring out its hidden beauty, cleaning up the scanned image of an old  faded photo, or creating something altogether new from disparate digital elements, I truly do enjoy the challenge. I am not an artist by any means. There are so many practitioners of this relatively new art form whose work totally takes my breath away, that I remain in awe. It is one of life's joys for me, so I am including examples of my work here. Some of it is just for my own entertainment, and some for printing out to be framed or displayed. I often do tutorials presented by those more expert than myself, and when I have time I like to design my own cards for various occasions.
