One of My Fav Posters

I'm enrolled in the Graphic Design program at the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design. I chose it over photography—after much consideration and second guessing—for two reasons:

  1. My favourite thing to do with photographs at this point in my life is muck about with them until they look completely different.
  2. While photography would very easily and joyfully fill my days, my written work is much more in need of graphic design accompaniment than photos.
So, what I've learned so far in the program is basic use of tools and the elements of design. I've had a great deal of fun and no small amount of frustration learning them. At this point, it's only fitting that I show off at least a little something:
The poem quoted here was written ages ago while I waited to see a woman about becoming a writing mentor for me. It was one of the inspirations for my novel, and shows up in part on one of the covers.
Hours of work go into my pieces. I come to hate them near the end. For some few, I fall in love all over again. I'm quite fond of this one. I'd call it "Bones" but I call everything "Bones," so should probably come up with something else.
