I'm Still Alive! And Making Book Covers

I know I haven’t been very active here at Redbubble for a while now. But thought I’d swing in and let you all know I’m still alive! Just been broadening my horizons is all.

I’ve been doing more commissioned work with ebook covers lately. You can read about that in my blog if you’d like.

I do still get out with my camera when I can, life just takes its toll, making it hard to do so. BUT I do check in here fairly regularly, if not to just see the gorgeous new works you all put out.

Absolute Michigan's Daily Photo!

One of my pictures was picked as Absolute Michigan’s Michigan in Pictures Daily Picture today!!! That may not mean anything to a lot of you (especially since RedBubble is international) but I have been uploading to thier Flickr pool, well, since I have been here. I can’t believe I was picked! It is such a great honor!!

For today, I’ll be on Absolute Michigan’s Main Page. And I will be forever blogged and archived on thier Michigan in Pictures blog.

It was one of my TTV images, that I hadn’t uploaded here yet (have now!)

Different Computer Monitors and Viewing Redbubble

My computer is in the shop being fixed, so in the mean time, I am using my husbands, and I can’t help but notice the differences in view artwork. I’ve noticed this a time or two in the past, using other computers.…

It seems that newer monitors,(I guess they have an antiglare? screen) makes everything much lighter than it is. Blacks have a greyishness to them, unless it’s text, everything is just off. The layout, buttons and logo on redbubble look the same, but the images look like someone turned down the contrast, and seriously upped the lightness. Almost washed out. I can’t even imagine trying to work on art using this monitor, it would be all distorted. I know for a fact that the way the image looks on my monitor is how it prints.

How many of you out there work on art on the new moni

Dedication

My father passed away Monday, September 15, 2008. He was diagnosed with cancer less than 3 weeks ago, went into the hospital last Monday for testing to decide which route would be best for treatment, and found out he had worse problems. By the time they released him Saturday, he could no longer walk, or move himself around. He passed Monday night after an unexpected fast decline in health.

I have dedicated Ephemeral Partings to him. We will be using this image for the funeral pamphlets.

When I created this piece, it made me think of loosing someone close, and waiting until we meet again. Of course, at the time, I didn’t expect any of this.

To my father… I love you … may you rest in peace.
