“Photoshop is too hard”

A wise man (Che) once said, “The only one who’s being hurt by my hate for computers is myself”.

Same haha.

For so long I was resistant to use mediums like Photoshop because I thought they were too hard to understand for a visual learner like me. So many drop down menus and tricks and things you have to just know. And while I still think that computerized art systems could be so much more intuitive and accessible, I was just missing out on a whole domain of art by not learning.

It wasn’t until rush ~go chi o~ that I was challenged to use good ole Photoshop to design banners and cover photos. My mental block dissipated as I just tried. hahaha.

And just like most art, it just took some time playing around and BOOM. ART. Here’s my progression so far. I wish I saved more progress pics so you could see how things develop  but here’s what I do have!

I made this ^ as the first draft but then dreamed up a WAY cooler design.
