Photoshop CC for the win! + 2020 is a crapshoot
Holy heckin’, well, 2020 has been really weird – obviously. Right before covid-19 crossed the ocean and hit Canada, I got super addicted to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (for Nintendo Switch) and so I haven’t painted a lot, but I have been making some digital art. There is a lot to unpack for this year, so I will just share a “recent” digital painting that I completed in Photoshop using my Wacom Cintiq 22.
So much and yet so very little. Today’s newness includes yet another revamp of my website, mostly to make it more mobile-friendly. I was selected to be in the Artspot Under $100 Art Show for December 2-6, 2020 but it was postponed due to the second covid-19 wave happening in Alberta. Our infection numbers are really high right now based on our population (approx 1500-1800 a day for a population of under 4.5 million). I’ve been frustrated with WordPress continually and almost jumped ship to Squarespace, but I really do not like paying a company to host my website.
I framed approximately 100 pieces of art for the Under $100 show and, due to it being postponed and/or cancelled, I will be posting the work on my website for sale. The pieces will be under $100 for the most part, and all of the paper works are framed. I picked up a bunch of silver metal frames from an estate sale for all of my paper works and they worked out great for sizes like 6x8s and 9x12s.
I will make a giant post about what I’ve been doing in 2020 and what my plans are for 2021. I’ve wanted to post some art supplies and equipment reviews as well, including a review about the Wacom Cintiq 22. One big thing about the Wacom products is that you NEED to have a powerful PC to use them with, otherwise the Cintiq does not perform well.
Ta ta for now…
