I’ve been using Adobe software programs since 1993 and spent a skill-boosting week at Apple headquarters in Cupertino at the 1999 Art Directors Invitational Master Class (ADIM). There isn’t much I can’t create or fix in Illustrator or Photoshop. For one project I designed and created original bottle shapes, labels and tropical colored wine flavors (all in Photoshop) for market testing.
I use these skills for everything from Facebook graphics to fixing staff photos. I also make greeting cards and quick logos for friends or good causes on occasion. In 2006 I spent a fair amount of time riding on the back of a Harley Electra Glide so I retouched myself and a custom plate into a classic scene for that year’s holiday card.
