Here’s a close-up of what I did tonight on the drawing. I did some drawing within the cellular framework, and added color. It doesn’t look like I did much, but I took my time and enjoyed it. It was very meditative. Even though I’m enjoying the drawings that I’ve been doing, I have a big urge to PAINT. So tomorrow morning, I might get my paint on!
I took the photo in bed with my iPod touch. The lighting is pretty dark, so the photo wasn’t that great and it had some serious color cast happening–it was very yellowish. I decided to try editing it in one of the many photo apps I have instead of taking a “real” picture or scanning it. I gave PhotoForge a try, and was really impressed with all of the editing tools that it had. I’ve had the app for awhile, but never used it.
From the app, I was able to upload it to flickr, which is where I keep the photos I use on my blog. And from flickr, I edited it a little more in Picnik, which is a simple editing program within Flickr. Considering what the photo looked like originally, I’m impressed with how much better it looks.
This is a little off the subject, but I am so happy, I want to give him a shout-out. I’ve been trying to figure out how to put a widget in my sidebar that shows my new products form my web site. I’ve got one for my etsy shops, I’ve got one for flickr, and for amazon. But for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to get one for my zencart shop. I tried and tried, and couldn’t get it to work. Then this morning, via twitter, I found Ryan Thomas, who helps people with their self-hosted wordpress blogs. I hired him, and he got it working for me! I need to do some tweaking to it yet, but I’m so happy to have it working. He was great to work with, and it was all done via e-mail. So, if you need any help with your self-hosted wordpress blog, e-mail him and he’ll get you fixed up!
