Saw your exhibit in DAM! I got a vision of you surrounded by computer
equipment. I have a chair in my living room with stuff literally all
around me... I even have a computer for work that I plug and unplug
from alongside my play one..
I have really been getting into Photoshop with a new job with Angel
Graphics. They sell art prints and photos worldwide. Last night I was
compiling Van Gogh and Monet picts for a catalog.. memories.. They have
a G3 but the images are so large (22x20) that the compiler makes me
wait, so I read the Photoshop manual. Have almost finished it.
I am coming after a non artist manipulator of images there and I have
noticed a difference in our approach to using software. She was really
sharp intuitively but tended to see things superstitiously; many actions
based on assumptions. She got things done. But my actions are based on
knowledge and even though I don't fill my off time with sales activity
like she did, I get things done faster and clear up long standing
problems. It is very interesting to see the old art priniciples brought
over to Photoshop. I tend to recognize old friends in the software and
I know where they are coming from. It does make a difference.
(along with this educaton thing...)
I have debated sending my children to school in the normal sense when
they reach college age. Although I learned much from college; it almost
killed me and put me through stuff I would rather not have gone
through. I guess I have decided to educate them myself totally; a
daunting task! Already I am scrambling to relearn stuff. After awhile
of constantly learning you realize some cosmic truths about the process.
