Here’s Sammy, the striped dog that I crocheted and photographed, relaxing with a margarita on his back deck. Another digital collage by yours truly composed with Photoshop, Illustrator, PowerPoint, manipulated clip art and too much time with no project at work. I tell my boss that creating these images help sharpen my software skills. I figure its better than me surfing the web all day. And the next time I need to whip out an illustration of teeth for some publication or other, I’ll be able to produce it quickly due to my playing around during my slow time. Well, that’s my story. And it is true, I do learn the ins and outs of the software this way. But I must admit that when real work arrives, its sometimes very difficult to pull myself out of the fun and dive into the dental duties. But I do.

I almost forgot. I created a digital collage last week that I never shared with you. Here’sswingin' the trio of crocheted cats that were created for a retail store right before they were shipped out.

As always, click on the picture for a bigger view. And click here if you want to see all the digital collages in a cute little Flickr set. They look really cool all together, like a little book…….

Enjoy.

    If I added a pic of me it would ruin the colorfulness, I’m not that colorful. I’m pretty much mighty white!
