I didn't like my desktop top soo...

I remember one night staring at my computer and just getting annoyed that my photos didn't fit neatly into my desktop (curse you 1280x800 screen) so I thought to myself, surely I can make something that I like to go on there? After all this is what I do...

So I spent a few hours playing around with brushes, photo's, my scanner... and came out with these offerings...


I took the photo in Prague, but very little of the original image is still in there, originally it was photo of a tram!


This is a scan of a piece of cardboard that was on my bed, and the photo is from a friends trip to New Zealand, I like this one because I used Illustrator to vector trace the details, so I could print any size if I wanted!!!


This time I was trying to make a frame, I used various brushes I had just found on misprinted type (what a website) and I can't remember where the middle bit came from.


Again same format this time, different colour with some swirls I scanned off a wedding invite I had on my table!!

This was a random and cool exercise, there was about 14 more, but most of those were subtle variations on the same themes. These are my fav's of the bunch.

Much Love
