hey what up! With the advent of my going out of state next winter, it comes to mind all the weird things you get asked when people hear that you are from North Pole... so, I have decided to create a t-shirt... yup, it's going to have a graphic of alaska with a star by North Pole, and it'll say, "Yes, I'm from the North Pole!" And on the back there will be a list. A list of clarifying statements.

Here we go!
- Alaska is NOT an island!
- Contrary to popular belief, we don't live in igloos!
- I have NEVER ridden a dogsled to school!
- Yes, I have seen Santa Claus, his name is Kris Kringle, and he runs a terr0r- I mean tourist trap just down the road and drives a Ford F250.

- We DO accept american money! (remember, we're STATE 49!)
- We DO have summer! And yes, it does get up to 90!
- Just because I'm short and from the North Pole does NOT mean I am an elf!
- We DO have a McDonald's!

- NO, I have never seen a penguin or a polar bear in person... I have seen too many moose though...

so yeah, let me know if you have any other ideas for my shirt... peace out!

Photoshop Rocks!

hey all, had some spare time, so i figured I would put something up... I have been taking this really awesome class for Adobe PhotoshopCS2, and have been learning a lot.. so I wanted to share some of my work... this first one is a project that was assigned to make a certain size file with a mug shot that the teacher took...

some of the requirements for this assignment was at least three layers...text, the actual photo, and a background, with some form of opacity tweak.

This next one is a CD cover that we had to create....

the requirements for this project was (obviously) size, a gradient, a vector shape, 2 text layers (1 w/ warp, and 1 w/following a path), an adjustment layer, and a layer mask.
woot! fun fun!
