Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Awesomely done, Chris!!

  • I am never going to be able to give the Creative Cloud up when the three month is up (I guess Adobe knows that and that’s why they let you win it) but a subscription seems like a better deal than buying the whole shebang outright so I have to learn how to rob banks!!!! Very happy you liked this little artwork John, thanks so much for the nice comment, cheers.
