Did you miss me? I know you did. I wish I had some rad adventure to explain my absence but I don't. A crashed hard drive is to blame. Apple had to install a new one for me. On one hand, it's really nice to have a "new" computer to start off working with. It is almost the same feeling, for me, as getting a beautiful, clean, new sketchbook. I love new sketchbooks, they're so full of potential.
On the other hand it TOTALLY SUCKS! All of my applications were gone, most importantly, my photoshop was gone and I didn't have the disks to re-install it. Which meant I had to buy it...
I am now the proud owner of Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended. I'm still learning the new,"extended", part of it. Sounds dirty...heehee!
