Creative Project #005

 

Jims creative self

 
I downloaded GIMP this morning for my photo manipulation needs. It’s very similar to Photoshop but free! Not because it’s an illegal download or anything sinister like that. It’s actually an open source program created by users for users. GIMP is also a way better name than Photoshop too!
 
Now armed with the correct software I had another crack at the photo I took of dad (Jim). It turned out much better this time. The next question is how I am going to present/display these portraits. Will they have a graphic design feel or a visual arts approach…
 
Let me know what you think!

Introducing my alter egos

In a unit that has more in common with therapy than a traditional university unit I finally came face to face with my alter egos. Turns out they are just like me and have their own hopes, dreams and fears. I will also like to mention how awesomely cool they were in letting me take a couple pictures to share on this blog!

The boys

Keep it real guys…just remember I’m the boss and we’ll avoid having to share a straight jacket!
