“When you make the finding yourself – even if you’re the last person on Earth to see the light – you’ll never forget it.”
- Carl Sagan
My apologies for the lapse in posting over the past week or so. My duties at work have kept my hands pretty well occupied. This blog however, allows me to keep my sanity through the crazy late night work sessions, looming deadlines, overlapping projects and the general craziness that comes with working at an agency. Bear with me.
This piece was a happy accident of sorts. I set out to experiment with Photoshop brushes and layer styles; in doing so I stumbled upon a few unexpected effects. I started out working in a controlled manner, then moved to a looser style, layering color on top of color on top of color. It’s all about the push and pull between order and chaos, light and dark. I’m having a lot of fun with this new way of working in Photoshop. Never underestimate the power of experimentation. Work through the tutorials if you’re trying to achieve a certain effect, but there’s quite a thrill in discovering something unexpected.
