I'm an amateur, love to express with color & whatever techniques I can muster, & with as little reality intruding as possible. It does bite, as you know.

Current Residence: bridge of USS Angeles NCC 71840 SFI
  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: Lady Ga Ga
  • Reading: The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
  • Watching: Heroes
  • Eating: Japanese crackers
  • Drinking: coffee mocha
Someone looking over my shoulder as I retouched photos for a club website said the above. I enhance color on each photo, just below the level of garish. I hadn't thought anyone would do any differently.

I started out as most do, fixing red-eye and sharpening the blurries. Then I started to fix people's appearance. Why not get rid of under-eye shadows, add "lipstick" and "mascara", airbrush out acne, whiten teeth? Hey, that's better.

But now I go for aesthetic expression. I keep finding new ways to make colorful, cool images out of all those TV & movie photos I keep downloading.

I can draw, reasonably well. I just have NO patience. And I never learned to use color - not even color pencils.

I remember saying almost 20 years ago that computers weren't worth the trouble until they could work like magic. Back then computers were slow, clumsy and dull. But now; magic. And I like color. So my art looks like hallucinogenic Hollywood.

I think that's fun. I'll do this for a while. Until I learn to do something better.
