WIP Spacey Digital Art

Hi ho my lovelies, I’ve been mucking about with the GIMP lately and was inspired tonight to use my own photographs to create a spacey landscape.  This is the first draft of an as-yet-unnamed digital work. There is more work to do on it, but it’s a start. For the landscape, I used a photo […]

Teesha style page

I’m still experimenting with Teesha’s art journal collage style. This page just kept going. However, I like that I combined collage with text. Also, I am really enjoying my lettering.

Early Photo Collage

In 2008, I decided to try my hand at photo collage using the GIMP, given that I have, well, a hard drive full of digital images.  To be honest, I’ve always been a bit intimidated by the GIMP.  It takes a lot of work to try out tools and figure out how it works and […]
