Robin and I never get over the feeling of empowerment that comes with using software programs such as Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Photoshop.
Robin recently gave a keynote presentation at Santa Fe University of Art & Design. The event, Hire Education, was a day-long event and portfolio review, sponsored by AIGA New Mexico.
Cleaning out the garage can provide a nostalgic trip down Graphics Memory Lane, plus stir up lots of ideas for new projects.
Our three-month sojourn to London, Paris, Istanbul, and Ireland is almost over. One of the highlights of the adventure was a visit to the National Portrait Gallery in London to see a Lucian Freud (1929-2011) exhibit that included 100 paintings spread across his entire career.
