Postcards from Orion-18.

I’ve been fooling around with Photoshop some more, getting more and more comfortable with it.  This one took three days (several hours each day)….I basically took about eight different photographs and combined them….one was a photo of a bridge in Florence, one was of a lake, and four or five were various photos of stone castles and rocky mountainsides.  The last was from the FXFILMS Website who just happened to have a photo a model starship that is apparently 18ft long (it’s called the Rodger Young and looks amazing).

Photoshopped alien landscape

In any case, this was my first attempt, but I learned a lot of things the hard way which will hopefully help on the next piece I import into Photoshop.

A Florence journal page – a bust of Benedetto

This is a page from the journal I kept while backpacking in Europe.  At the time I was crashing on the couch of several Chapel Hill girls who were attending art school in Florence for the summer.

I had to photograph the journal below (instead of scanning it)….the weird discoloration in the center is from the flash which I attempted (for about ten seconds) to correct with Photoshop.
