Extra bonus points to anyone who knows what movie the lamp in the background is from!

Digital Media 113 Final Project

Here is the final I just finished for my Digital Media 113 class (the last in all the DM classes!). Most everything is made from scratch in Photoshop or Illustrator...Just three photos (part of the view from each window, and also the red leaf hanging on the wall). Hope you are proud!

Recently, I've been able to use some of my Illustrator skills at work! Below are some samples of images I made for a calendar for our Controller's Group. The theme of the calendar is process improvements, which is headed up by a team called The Idea Mine. One of their logos is a light bulb, which was something they wanted as a key theme. Randomly, the light bulb evolved into a family of light bulbs. Below are my favorites from the calendar...

Are Stanta's Elves Supposed to Frighten Children?

So I went with my mom to take my nephews to Christmas in the Park in San Jose earlier today. It was fun and they got to see Santa (photo above). As we were walking through the park and looking at all the Christmas displays and decorations, we came across one called "Santa's Workshop." The photo below is what the elves in the scene looked like...sort of scary...especially if you are from a culture where elves visit your house during Christmas time! I wouldn't want to have my toys made by these elves, let alone have them visit my home!

The Zoo Family - A Photoshop Tribute to the Metsalas

I recently had to paint a black and white photo for a photoshop class and paste in a picture of myself, a pet, or something similar. I was looking through photos and came across one of Val, his sister Hanna, brother Ral, and mom Heli all bundled up in their winter gear. Who knew there were Giraffe's in Estonia!
