Still Kicking!

I haven’t posted in while. Not because I don’t love you all but because I’ve been so busy. Between illustrating a childrens book, designing characters for an online cartoon series and creating an 12x3ft hand painted banner, I haven’t had the time to post. To heavy my load, I’m now a full time graphic communications student.  Posts may not come as frequently as they have been in recent weeks, but i do plan to share all of my educational experiences and learnings through this blog.

So Nothing too heavy here, I just wanted to let folks know that tanner is still alive and still apart of the WordPress community. Here’s a couple of new photos to show that I’m still kicking!

I don’t have a srl camera but I blurred the backgrounds of these photos in Gimp to give them an srl look. I will download a screen shot application, and my next post will be a tutorial on how to achieve this slr affect in Gimp. Sound Okay? Okay. Enjoy!
