This trunk is my creation for the final Photoshop class I’ve been taking online. Our assignment was to create a travel collage. As usual I wanted to push it beyond a typical poster. It seemed fitting with to move on with a travel trunk that would symbolically contain my lessons learned. Creating it involved using every technique I've learned in this class and spending hours being totally absorbed in manipulating pixels into an illusion of an object. Why create an image of something I could just take a picture of? Because I couldn't. It didn’t exist until now. Isn’t that the joy and purpose of being an artist?
