Hello. My name is Ed. I've worn many hats in life, but the making of art and creative use of media has always been my favorite. Whether you desire to draw a portrait in traditional media, paint digitally or retouch a worn treasured photograph with Adobe Photoshop, I'd love to be on your team. A few years ago I decided to add all things digital to my artistic toolbox, finally leading to a degree in graphic arts from the School of Information Technology & Communication Design at California State University Monterey Bay. My emphasis there was digital animation, but my strong, cinematic sense in motion art is grounded in traditional figure drawing, composition, color and design theory. I must have used Adobe Photoshop at least once every day for the last ten years, and drawn with graphite pencil or charcoal for more than five times longer than that. One thing I must mention is that drawing and Photoshop are sufficiently complex that an artist never stops in the need to learn. That goes for me as well. I subscribe to many forums, and engage in discussions with professional and student artists alike. If you have a burning question that I can't immediately answer, I will surely do my best to find that answer -- or point you in the right direction. Thank you in advance for letting me help you realize your creative projects.
