Events/Gallery Opening

Doing a demo

Last Friday I traveled to Palm Desert to do some demos of Photoshop and Painter at the Grand Opening of the Computerworks Digital Art Gallery. It was a great night and I had a wonderful time chatting with everyone about the neat things you can do with these programs.

I usually prefer traditional media to create my art; finding myself more comfortable with watercolor and pencil. That said, it was great to have a chance to use the Wacom tablet again. As the speed of computers has increased, the experience of creating digital art grows closer and closer to traditional methods.

The guests at the opening were very nice and quite interested in how the artwork was created and how the programs operated. I had many quick, but thoughtful conversations about the nature of digital art and how it relates to the rest of the art world.
