My Bio

My computer art experience includes working with Adobe PhotoShop and Illustrator, as well as with design programs such as InDesign and Quark. My illustrations are available for sale as clip art on iStockphoto as vector format images. I am actively working to become a professional in the comic book industry.

Adding color to comic pages

Adding color to comic pages

I've been using PhotoShop for years, and am comfortable using its features and filters. I've done limited coloring of artwork using the program, but never before colored a complete comic. So, in preparation to do the best job I could, I checked out several coloring tutorials on Utube and ingested various techniques offered there. In the end, I integrated those techniques that worked well for me and applied them to my working method. I'm still learning, but as with all things, think I'm improving with each page. In fact, I plan to re-color several pages that I had already added color to. It's taking me a while to get this ready for publication

Devious Journal Entry

Devious Journal Entry

Monday, 2012.07.16 Returned from San Diego today on a whirlwind trip to COMIC-CON. I haven't gone in several years, and was able to make it to this one. Attending the convention always seems to inspire me, and this time was especially so. I went to my first ever portfolio review (I've had portfolios reviewed for several jobs in the past, but never by a comic book editor), and the over-all reception was good! I can be very insecure about my art, and this really made me feel great. In fact, I was anxious to get home so I could get back to work on my comic projects. But the days at Comic-Con always go by fast, and I spent almost all my time sit
