Photoshop Fun

A few years ago I took some of the nature and dream sketches you’ve been seeing here and made a 3 page poetry comic called “STOLEN MOMENTOS”. The story was originally assembled in black and white from photocopies with newly lettered captions. I brought that into Photoshop with the idea of coloring it but my initial attempts didn’t get off the ground. Then one day I found a little old beat up picture frame that I scanned the back of. Using hard-learned computer skills, I made the pages of the comic look as if they were printed in faded blue on the back of the cardboard. I like the way the effect adds a whole new dimension to the poetry.
