So far, 2013 has been quite the travel year. Considering I live on the road, full-time, that statement sound a little odd, I suppose. I guess what I mean is that it’s been full of event-related travel, much of which has been via air, not highway. Things have been busy, in a great way!

It wasn’t two days since I returned from my trip to the Light Workshops in Los Osos, CA, that I was back on a plane again, en route to New York City, for the first of my Photoshop Artistry seminars, with Kelby Training. I taught the one-day seminar, got on a plane to Washington DC and then presented the seminar there on the following day. This is a new seminar tour, full of completely new content, so these first two events were interesting for me. It can be tricky to make sure everything is timed right and that all the topics are covered thoroughly, but I think things went very well overall and the feedback has been really positive.

The Photoshop Artistry seminar is broken into five, 1-hour segments that cover creative compositing, adding dimension to your images, essential masking techniques, advanced blending modes and jaw-dropping tips. To learn more, and to see when I’ll be coming to your area, check out the event page HERE.

The upcoming tour dates are:

April 12: Portland, Oregon

April 22: Denver, Colorado

After my two events on the east coast, I returned to the bus, which is near Eugene, Oregon, where my vintage bus is getting its new interior installed. Lots of progress has been made in the past several weeks, and we’ve been doing a lot of work in planning the layout. I’ve also spent some time this week looking at wood veneers, as that’s the next thing we’ll have to pick out. You can follow the vintage bus project on facebook for more frequent updates.

Coming up…

In one week, I’m teaching a 2-day online course at creativeLIVE called “Mastering Photoshop: The Fundamentals.” You can tune it April 1-2 at and while it’s live, it’s free! You can learn more or sign up HERE.

I’ll probably spend the rest of the week working up upcoming training events as well as the vintage bus interior. More to come!
