Photoshop Cut-Aways: Nearly Done, Despite Potential Disaster!


I'm still working away at my computer, using Photoshop to finish off the scans of my Swap! project. trying to get all the illustrations cut off their pink paper backgrounds and onto funky colours, before my imminent deadline. I have a small extension - I now have until 11am tomorrow morning!

It's been going well and slightly faster than I expected, which is of course FANTASTIC news. Especially given the major set-back I had on Monday. As I was beavering away, about 10.30am, my computer suddenly snapped itself off, mid illustration. NNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

It turned out, by my extraordinary bad luck, that there was a fire in our electrical sub-station, so the power in the whole of my area of Sheffield was cut off for several hours. I had to sit and read a book as the time ticked by. Thank goodness they sorted it out eventually.

Ha ha ha - never thought of that. Let's hope your average 6 or 7 year old won't be carrying that image in the forefront of their mind!

The RHCP so should have used pink, stripy ones...
