I try not to buy things I don't need. Recently, I closed down my business in an effort to get back to art.
Originally, I had gone to school to become a painter. I am not particularly gifted with a brush, so I eventually landed in the darkroom. I loved photography, and I still do, but I still love to doodle, too.
I shot a wedding not too long ago, so I had a little more cash than usual. I decided to buy myself a birthday present, and splurged on the Bamboo Capture tablet! I then spent my holiday weekend figuring out the hand-eye coordination. I still have a TON to learn (and it turns out Photoshop CS5 is WAY different than my old 98 version, which is REALLY annoying), but I am loving it!
All I've really done so far as glorified tracings of images of friends and family, but it's been a blast!
I also have a Facebook page for my artsy stuff! You can like me HERE!
I hope all you States folks had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend; and everyone in general had a lovely weekend! Summer is definitely arriving here on the East Coast!
