2014 Calendar to Download!

December 10, 2013 at 10:20 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , )

Since scheduling wisdom everyone knows is,
“Always take time to smell the roses!”
Whether your days dawn with sunshine or showers,
Be soothed all the year by the beauty of flowers.

My calendar this year is inspired by my garden. Each month features a photo from our yard along with a tidbit of green-thumb wisdom for your inspiration or amusement. Additional images feature vintage garden-themed ephemera from various sources including OldDesignShop.com, TheGraphicsFairy.com, and Lilac-n-Lavender.blogspot.ca, to whom I am very grateful.

This calendar, if printed, is 4.6 X 5.4 in., designed to fit into a CD-style easel case. To download the calendar for viewing or printing, click the cover image below.

A beloved member of my family recently passed away, Sybil Myoshin Taylor. Here is a tribute to her, prepared by me and my sister Erika Taylor. (I used PowerPoint, of all things, to create it, then exported to mp4.)

More Photoshop

First, I must apologize for neglecting my blog all summer. I guess I just like to play outside too much to sit in front of the computer long enough for blog maintenance! Last spring, I took a semester-long Photoshop class at Oakton College (ART 257), 16 weeks of excellent instruction and inspiration (thanks to teacher Jody Lepinot). You’ve already seen the first half of my work from the class in the gallery below. Here are the remaining images created for the final critiques.

Photoshop Composites

March 28, 2010 at 6:11 pm (Photo Gallery) (, , , , , , )

This gallery features digital photo compositions from my current class on advanced masking and compositing in Photoshop. My goals include sorting my plethora of photos, both digital and vast collections of old family photos, and documenting collections (both virtual and physical). Some of my inspiration comes from the styles of Maggie Taylor and Martina Lopez.
