Welcome to News From The Studio

I've come out of the Luddite era and found that it's actually kind of fun to post a blog. I'll try to update this as often as I can, and share what I'm making and a bit of how I make it.


Ongoing Project

These are some pages and the cover of a collage book I am working on. When its finished it will have a paragraph from Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum in it. I'm finding the book dense and somewhat difficult, but the writing is beautiful.



 From time to time I plan to publish here a little news about what I'm doing in the studio, and to share some technical information. I make all my books using Photoshop except for the collage books, which tend to be less narrative.

 A friend advised me when I got my first computer that the Elements version of Photoshop would have everything I would need, and so far this has been great advice. Another friend told me not to try to fugure out everything Elements could do, but instead to figure out what I wanted to do, and then how to make Photoshop do it, and that too saved me a lot of time spent wandering around in the endless possibilities the program offers.

 Right now I am working on a new carousel book with a circus theme. I have been struggling with it for 4 months and finally some resolution seems to be coming!
