Blogging…do I have time for it?

I’ve often hear that I should blog.

Let’s see if I can find time for doing a bit of blogging. I have a busy schedule as both a book cover designer and as one managing a chronic illness (Diabetes, etc.), but I do want to get back into writing again as well. I miss writing fiction.

For the time being, I’ll attempt to post about my design process and preview a little more of my work.

A graphic of Jon Snow from Game of Thrones

I designed the above graphic a few months ago as the TV series Game of Thrones was wrapping up their run on HBO. There was a time when I would design many graphics like this on a regular basis. However, I seem to never find the time – especially this year – as commissioned work has been steady. But I do need to push myself to learn regularly as Photoshop is a very powerful design program, and no one knows every trick and effect it is capable of. I have learned a few new ways to make my designs pop even more. I’m implementing them as opportunities arise.
