Golly, it's been a long time since I've submitted anything for publication in any book or magazine. Recently, I was notified by Angela & Sarah that I would have art published in issue 10 of Pasticcio Quartz. At last, issue 10 has been released by Lulu publishing company.
This renown publication, Pasticcio Quartz, is the fabulous creation of the multi-talented, dynamic duo Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn. There have been 10 artful, insightful, and delightful issues so far. Here is a slide show of some of the past issues:
Angela and Sarah have this to say about Issue 10 (buy it here):
Our 10th Issue has 72 brilliant, jam-packed pages! A fabulous outsider artist from New Mexico (Kelly Moore), an illustrator's dream of a paper doll designer (Donald Hendricks), an interview with inimitable NYC artist and founder of The Pulse (Seth Apter), and a glimpse of a well-known LA actress's luscious California cottage! Rubber stamping (Yes, it's alive and doing very very well!) and a peek into the strange and fascinating worlds of dolls, puppets, and Harajuku fashion. And that's just the beginning...
The gallery of work by guest artists, "Palais D'Art," has 20 pages of large images. I was honored to have one of these pages. Thank you Angela and Sarah.
Would you like to see the "before" pictures of my digital manipulation, Junior's?
Well, I started with my digital photo of an old building in downtown Conroe, TX and this image of a bicycle:
First, using Photoshop, I added the bike to the original photo and put in a drop shadow for the bike to make it look more realistic. Then I gussied it up with color, grunge, an added image to window, vingnetting, etc.
JUNIOR'S, Digital Manipulation

As we digital artists inevitably do, I took the finished photo through various "morphs" in Photoshop just to see what would happen. Though this digital photo manipulation was done long before I had taken any of the digital art classes, I did know how to play around and see what filters, adjustments, or added layers would do. These were done prior to adding the window logo and the grunge effects to the photo:
