I originally started working for a digital photography studio to do their web design back in 1999. At one point, our primary restorationist fell behind pn assignments. Since I was ahead on mine, I asked to give it a try, even though I'd never worked with any image manipulation software before.

Within a couple of days (in between working on my own assignments), I presented the client with the restored version (second thumbnail). The client was pleased, as was the owner of the studio. I ended up taking on the position of main digital artist/restorationist on top of my web design dutites.

Thus began my love of working with Adobe Photoshop; within six months of this first project I did my first Pixie.
