Earlier today, after I gave my update about why I wasn’t active yesterday (Read: I Took a Mental Health Day). I wanted to see if I still had ‘it’. It being the good ol’ photoshop skills. This year was to be my year off from working for clients doing book covers and Burning Willow Press, but when Burning Willow Press announced closing its door (Read: Goodnight Sweet Burning Prince), I had to get back to work.
In a recent podcast (which hasn’t gone to live yet) I announced (basically) that I wasn’t ready to go back to graphical work for another publisher if they were to want to hire me (as of right now) but maybe in the future.
I also realized that earlier this year when my website changed and moved to WordPress I didn’t migrate my portfolio. With this most of my art hasn’t been up, in some form, here yet. So with that, I’ll be creating a section for my old cover art for all to see again.
I use the program Adobe Photoshop and my old copy of Paintshop Pro when creating. The above are all digital photo manipulations created strictly in Adobe Photoshop. I used images with free commercial use licenses from the public domain ‘free stock photos’ to bring them to life. I have watermarked them as I created the art.
