Landscape designWhen I first graduated high school, my first "real" job was as a Draftsman for a company called Mogul. I chose that profession because I liked drawing, but at the time being an artist was a bad idea. The job market was pretty dry when it came to an art career.

Since then I have worked my way into a web development career. Though I love my job, I really do not get the chance to be creative anymore. Yea sure, programming wise I find many creative ways to make things do what I want or need them to do. But that is not the same as putting the color to the canvas and making something beautiful.

In the past year I have set a goal for myself to do more creative things. Either designing a website layout, creating landscapes, or just designing an image composite for an advertisement.

The following Photoshop projects are the steps I have taken to improve my design skills, and have fun in the process.

Most of these projects can be found at tuts+. Another great site to learn more about digital graphic design is Ctrl+Paint.

I hope you find these helpful

Welcome to

I'm going to be up front here about, this site is in no way connected to me selling a book I wrote, plastering the pages with ads to click on, or in no way making me any money.

The whole purpose of this site is to show people things I love to do, display my photography skills (or lack of), and experiment with new web technologies.

It’s also a place for me to jump on my soapbox and rant about the way the programming world is changing. In my Blog there are programming tips on coding JavaScript, and soon other langauges.
