Scotrick's Scotrick To showcase the drawings of fiends. Small round creatures with many friends, stick arms and legs, and a bit, a wee tiny smidge of a bit, of attitude.

This was the almost the beginning, when I had to jump in the big hole out here of the health care system here and knowing that I had to jump but not knowing how deep the hole is or how long the fall is going to be or whether there even is a bottom and on not jumping is holding up the line not only for the people behind you but all the loved ones who have agreed to go along with you on this journey.
Do you think I managed to get that expression in his eyes?

A fairly typical example of professional work, with the exception being the client needed the image finished, ideally within a day, two at most. That does put some pressure on.
The image on the left shows the client's problem: they had a small stock image, that needed much more grass and sky, in order to fill a banner. The blurred boxes on the right are the text boxes and logo that I've removed, because they weren't my bailiwick.
On the right, you can see my rather painterly emergency sky, clouds and grass. I had to use only the original image, which definitely did not contain enough information to easily clone these areas. Instead, I used my experience with grass and fields, to allow myself some lines in the grassy area, as from a mower, or a plough, or wind ruffling; using these ideas to give myself some guiding principles of how the new grass should look. And after some rapid flurries of emails with the client, made similar decisions about how many clouds should be in the sky, what sort they should be, and how they should or should not interact with the text boxes and the mood of the eventual combined parts of the banner, with the company's logo, and the marketing of that company's message. Which is why the sky is not truly as sky-like as I could have made it, discovering after a few tries that a somewhat artificial sky allowed a better focus on the textual elements of the image and that indefinable feel for what I felt everyone else was the total intention.

I've had the time to find and rescan this image at a higher resolution. This black and white photograph of a tree is still my favorite black and white photograph of a tree. Of mine. :)

My poster for Colson Whitehead's Fall 2009 VCU Visiting Writers Series. I used a photograph of a sawn stump and its scattered leaves, along with some obviously extreme color editing.
