Today a friend’s birthday prompted a birthday image for her Facebook wall. Before going to graphic design school, before even I was on Facebook, I cherished making cards for holidays and stuff. I love that I finally have the time and the knowledge of computer programs to make some cool stuff. I am currently into hand-lettering. I used Permanent PENSTIX No. 4017-F 0.7mm on some tracing paper. Then I took a picture with my camera phone and then played with it in Photoshop, using layers, hue-saturation adjustments and brushes.
