Gandi quote

Be the change you want to see in the world - my favorite Gandhi words....

This is one of the images I did as part of an assignment to design desktop backgrounds for computers and/or phones. I tried to think of something I would like to look at myself the whole day :)

PS/Watercolor collage

I have been playing around trying to learn Photoshop in order to be able to do something about the ugly photos/scans of my drawings and paintings - and I decided to also try to learn to do collages and other fun stuff. This is not the most beautiful work of mine, exactly, but a fun experiment. I have simply taken a little drawing my 5-year-old forced me to do ("draw a baby mermaid for me pleasepleaseplease"), cut it out in PS and placed it on top of a mix of two different watercolor backgrounds. Not so pretty, but a fun technique to learn, which hopefully could come in handy some day....

Second assignment

The second assignment in my course was to illustrate a text that described how the Swedish like to run away from the cold, darkness and depression in winter and how many people have settled down in Thailand, either for short periods or for good... This is my result, I had trouble with scanning, or rather taking a photo this time and trying to fix any mistakes in white balance, exposure etc in Camera Raw (a Photoshop program). This is my favorite method so far, but it is far from perfect...
