summer class

The summer semester has started, and I am very excited about the independent study course I am taking! Using "The Digital Matte Painting Handbook" by David B. Mattingly as the textbook to improve my Photoshop skills, I will be working with the instructor to create some short animations. I'll be able to use the computer lab at Parkland to work on After Effects, Flash, and MAYA.

The project ultimately will produce an educational video on salamanders for a Parkland biology professor. I will also be working on a personal animation project. I will soon start posting samples of the work I come up with over the summer.


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing the video.

    1. Afraid nothing came of the animation project. The instructor is going to start fresh (again!) with yet another batch of students. don't know if it will ever be made. In the meantime, I am having fun expanding my Photoshop skills- maybe animation opportunities will come later.
