First off, I'm really new to this blogging stuff so please excuse me if I have some issues getting started. This blog will be focused on my greeting card creations featured at Greeting Card Universe and Zazzle.com. I'll be linking this blog to a few others and I'll provide a separate posting for that.
How did this all get started? Well, the simple answer is that I wanted to do something with my photography and growing interest in digital art/graphic design. I am far from professionally trained. I learn through trial and error, tutorials, inspiration of other people's works, and through a desire to see how I can apply my own work into it all. It stems from creating fan wallpapers for my favorite TV shows and movies where I would combine images of the stars into my own photographs. It also comes from a love of fractal art (Fractal Explorer and Apophysis) and just goofing around with digital post-processing programs like Fractalius and Fotosketcher. Sometimes I just can't leave an image alone or rescue otherwise "junk" images to give them new life.-+
I do want to take a moment to thank several artists over at GCU for offering encouragement, critiques and tutorials on how to create marketable greeting cards. I hope you will visit their stores and see their work as I provide a public "thank you" for helping this newbie along.
