These are two photos I took in Montreal, Canada, in which I removed most of the transient objects (like people, animals, temporary signs, etc.) in Photoshop.

This is a series of women’s faces from stock images downloaded from the stock.xchng website. In Photoshop I generally removed blemishes and softened the skin on all the subjects, then reshaped and enhanced the faces to achieve what I believe to be more attractive results (Exhibits #1-5). Exhibit #5 is an age-reduction exercise, and Exhibit #6 is a hi-key adjustment only on a previously processed image.
Exhibit #5. Age reduction approx. -15 years
Exhibit #6. Hi-Key
This is my latest paid project, a PowerPoint presentation, subject: “Bullying.” It came to me through Guru.com. The “employer” wanted around 9 slides, and left it up to me to input pictures and style. I used a collage of my own photos for the background, giving it a sort of gritty, restless effect. Then I googled “bullying” and found a number of appropriate images that related directly to the employer’s text.

Flow dynamics of normal vs. cancerous capillary. For University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Doctorate Student’s Thesis. The image below shows my preliminary pencil sketches that I presented to the client. The first sketch was a full-color sketch that pretty much depicted a representative style suggesting colors and textures that might be used, but significant changes were suggested, which led to the 2nd and 3rd black-and-white pencil sketches, from which the final rendition was produced.
This is a series of six illustrations I did for Mentor Corporation, for their SeedVue Instructions for Use document for physicians and nurses. The SeedVue Brachytherapy Seed Holder housed tiny radioactive pins that were implanted inside the patient’s prostate gland to destroy cancerous cells.

Rendered in Adobe Photoshop. Self-promotional illustration.
This illustration was rendered entirely in Photoshop. A publishing company contacted me about leasing the image for use in their trade show booth. It was fortunate that I typically work on a large scale in my Photoshop illustrations, and I was able to provide them with a high resolution TIFF file at just the size they needed.
