Computer art

When I read Frank Herbert’s “Dune” I was stunned by the imagery he put into that book. I drew some sketches, did some watercolors, but none of them satisfied my inner vision. Along comes the computer, and Photoshop. At first I used Photoshop as an editing tool but soon realized it’s potential to go beyond those limits. The combination of airbrush, paint, line and layers turned my kid free.
Unfortunately, the need to put food on the table truncated this foray into this area. I’m going back.DuneThe Planet Dune’s other Name!

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
