I am deep in the process of creating all of my marketing materials for next year's senior season. UGH!! Anyway I just finished this promo for our storyboard line and I thought I would share. We are planning to set these out in the studio as well as send them out in the information packets.

David Announcement

I wanted to post this announcement even though it wasn't designed using photoDUDS. Well, there is one photoDUDS design on it . . . the tattoo on his arm. You may remember this image from an article that appeared in Rangefinder Magazine last August.
Anyway, I created this announcement of David for my long-time friend, Shelda. This is her youngest son (of three) and today is his 18th birthday. So, Happy Birthday David and congrats on your upcoming graduation!!

Newborn Composite

I just wanted to share one way in which I am using the photoDUDS in my everyday business. We have numerous options for composite images: 9 up square, slimline 5x30 panels, the eclectic, just to name a few. But now, using "my DUDS", I am able to create a designer series of composites whereby the final product is enhanced with papers and brush design from various photoDUDS DVDs. Here is a sample of a newborn composite I created earlier this year for the Plumleys. . . isn't Allyson beautiful!!
