The wonderful New Year's resolutions, I love how a whole bunch of goals are set at the beginning of each year...and if anyone is like me, you're lucky to keep up with one of those goals. Here it is March and I am just barely getting around to working on one such goal, to create more artwork.

Well I haven't been very succesful up until now. You are probably wondering what the reason is for the sudden increase in artwork and postings here on my blog, well, let's just say I have lot's more time on my hand and instead of wasting that time I have been trying to better my Photoshop skillz. Hopefully, then I will be able to show off my future awesomeness...until then please feel free to send me any feedback and comments on what I post. I may not comment on what you post, but it is read and considered while working on these pieces =)!!!

This latest project is a little darker. I found a tutorial on how to create this broken glass look from a fired gun and thought it would be fun to see if I could duplicate the effect (you English majors, don't judge me too harshly, I can't remember if it's effect or affect). While I had to find my own photos to use, which I found using Google Images, I wanted to make this a little bit darker and more sinister. I guess the actuall photo of the shooter wasn't the best angle to use, but I didn't want to use the exact same photos as the tuturoial. Anyway, let me know what you think.

Second thing I want to mention is this cool animated video that explains the whole credit crisis. It's short, about 10 mins, and it's entertaining. I guess the person who put this together did it all with Adobe Illustrator and Adobe After Effects, pretty cool in my opinion. Anyway if you have a some time, or you're just bored, visit this website and watch this video, again it is informative and very well put together.


  1. This is so cool honey! What an awesome affect you put over the photo!!! I think it is great that you are trying to do more artwork this year. I love seeing it on your blog and reading about what you is really fun.

  2. Looks good, Nate. By the way, you used effect right.

  3. Thanks Heather, glad I used it right.

  4. Nice! You are amazing by the way.

  5. I demand more entertainment. I love your work, and you are depriving me of its beauty. Please, post more. (If you have time.) You have a great talent. I wonder if any of your cuties will be artistic like you?
