My latest endeavor has been teaching myself to use Illustrator.  As a friend put it, “The pen tool is the devil.”  I decided not to let that discourage me. I decided that I need to create something, anything, so that I would feel that I am getting somewhere with the program.  The colors are weird and icky. It is too plain.  But yes… I made something dammit.

Last Day of the Year

Posted by kymm on October 31, 2015 in Uncategorized with No Comments


In December 2009 I house/ pet sat for my aunt and uncle in Dixon California.  I had never been to California.

Besides house privileges I also had the use of their Prius.  I was able to travel about quite a bit.  San Francisco, Sacramento, Sausalito, Redwood City, Calaveras County.

It was an amazing time that I will never forget. This rambling bit is inspired by the experience.

Last Day of the Year

To Illustrate a Point

Posted by kymm on October 21, 2015 in Uncategorized with No Comments


I’ve come to realize that I have been subscribing to Photoshop User magazine since 2009.  I was going through my collection and realized that I still have some of them in the plastic sleeves, never looked at.  Why have something if you are not going to use it.  In the April/May 2009 issue I found a tutorial titled, “Illustration Effect on Photos”.  I decided to play with it.  Perhaps I should go through all the magazines and do at least one tutorial in each.  The only way you get good at something is to practice.  I spend too much time doing my “JOB” and not enough doing the things I really enjoy.

Some people hate it, but I love HDR.  I love the crunchy, intensiveness of it.  I love that there is so much detail.

There is more than one way to do something.

The Evolution of Man

I’m still working on this.  A friend said it looked like Rob Lowe.  I’m the only person I know who can accidentally paint Rob Lowe.  I’ll definitely be lightening the lips.

My Refrigerator

Posted by kymm on January 18, 2015 in Uncategorized with No Comments


This is my refrigerator.  As you can tell I have no children. Iggy looks like a little boy who just discovered that it feels good to touch himself.  Someone was nice enough to Photoshop Alexander Skarsgård’s head on someone else’s body. I don’t know who the surfer is.  He just has a bad attitude.  The magnet on the bottom came from a friend in Europe.

I enjoy having fun with old images.  The original is just a pair of German soldiers.  The restoration is a pair of Matthew Grey Gublers.  He’s one of the actors in Criminal Minds.

I Spoil My Cat

Posted by kymm on December 27, 2014 in Uncategorized with No Comments


Although I thought of getting a cat for some time, when I got Triton it was kind of a spur of the moment thing.  While making space for the new girl I just threw down a sheet of cardboard where her feeding area was.  After a time this grew to be a bit gross.  I decided she needed a special spot just for her.

Triton's Feeding Station

The top is the original concept that I worked up in Photoshop.  Things evolved as it went.  The cat in the bottom right was left out.  I found print duct tape at Joann’s.  The letters did not come out exactly as I wanted.  The whole thing is covered in clear contact paper.  It is not as sticky as I would have liked.  However, overall I am happy with the end result.  Triton?  I really don’t think she gives a lick.

Work in Progress

I live in a small apartment, but I decided to make room for an easel.  Sure it takes up space in my living room and the cat has to walk around it to get to her food, but I always have access to it.  This is something I spontaneously started.  It is made with acrylic paint, lipstick, and eyeliner.  I found some cosmetics I had sitting in a drawer and did the math.  They were 11 years old.  I think they were **WAY** past using for what they were made for.  I will work on in more on the weekend.  I’ll post a photo of the finished product.
