Hi art friends. When I get stuck on a problem, my favorite way to do that is doodling.

I liked her so … Continue reading Digital Dreams Week 3 Homework

I haven't used a standard mouse for the past year, so I hoped it wouldn't be too difficult. Using the GIMP, I spent 2.5 … Continue reading Abstract digital creation
