Practice Makes Perfect

July 7, 2017

Anyone who really knows me can attest that music is, and always has been, a considerable part of my life. As a child, I learned how to play piano and frequently “rewrote the masters,” much to the chagrin of my traditionalist piano teacher. As a teen, I played clarinet in both my school band and a jazz quartet. After high school, I learned several other traditional band instruments and spent some time as a percussionist in a long-forgotten local band. I even briefly found a niche working in pro audio at a recording studio. However, with all the years I’ve invested in music, the one thing I never learned was guitar.

Merry Christmas To All…

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or some other celebration of the Winter Solstice, this time of year is traditionally a time of glad tidings and cheer.

The Theory of Repetitive Evolution

May 30, 2018

They say that the two worst things to discuss with friends are religion and politics. Well, I’m officially screwed.

54 Cutlass Concept

February 7, 2016

My second colorization attempt! Previously, I told you about the incredibly inefficient process I used in my first colorization, but I didn’t learn anything from it. Well, maybe I learned a little, but I used the same process to color this image of a 1954 Cutlass concept car. I’m not 100% sure where I found this image, but I liked the car, so I thought I’d give it a shot!

Kitten Therapy

July 6, 2017

I don’t care what anyone says, kitten therapy is a thing. Had the worst migraine for two days. Took every pain killer I had, nothing helped. Two minutes with the cat, and I felt 100% better.

Marie – Grey Doors 2

February 7, 2016

This colorization was done almost a month after the 54 Cutlass Concept colorization I discussed previously. In that month I did a fair amount of studying in regards to the techniques that go into recoloring an image. I still hadn’t mastered skin tones (to be honest, I’d say I still haven’t mastered it), but my overall technique had changed.

Burnout, Or What To Do When You Hit A Brick Wall

November 4, 2014

Before I begin, I’d like to take a moment and apologize for what passed for a post yesterday. Anyone who’s ever been a victim of migraines can tell you just how difficult they can make it to actually do anything, particularly when it comes to looking at words on a screen. However, I promised I’d get back to the real content today, so here we are!

No Such Thing As A Free Lunch

August 22, 2014

Sooner or later, ever designer or developer runs into a problem that plagues pretty much every aspect of humanity: the free lunch. It may start in a seemingly small or even insignificant way. Maybe a long-time client needs a tiny tweak to a project. It’s just one line of CSS, so why not? Two minutes isn’t worth much anyway, right? Wrong.
