Dreaming of the Alps...

I do very little digital work, preferring to be hands-on handmade. Still, its a useful skill to have and I'm keen to learn everything I can while at college. We had a photoshop workshop today, and although I'm fairly familiar with the program, the wonderful tutor showed me a few tricks I hadn't seen before. While I was playing around with the software, I made the digital collage above based on one of yesterday's in-location drawings ...

I quite like how it came out ... you can just about imagine this bearded fellow sitting at a cafe in Bristol with his cigarette and coffee, and headphones on, listening to the gentle sounds of ... "Yodelers of the Swiss Alps" ... or something ;)

What a clever idea! He really does look like an alpine guy. I'm trying to figure out ways to do collage also and you have , yet again, inspired me!

That's such a great image.

Having a rest day today after spending 2 days cleaning half of the front room and re-arranging furniture a bit... Still have to finish the front half! So am playing catch-up on your blog, you do such interesting work. :-)
