So, I’ve been sitting on this piece for a while and have re-worked it more than a couple of times now. You can see one of my earliest versions here. I enjoy this version much more. It’s more subtle, yet more beautiful, I kept wanting to add more elements to make it more colorful, give you more to look at… but then it was just becoming a jumbling mess of colors and designs. This is why I enjoy Photoshop, being able to push and pull digitally, but then again, sometimes things never seem to be finished…
With the RAW DC semi-finals show coming up, some great local businesses have been supporting and sponsoring the showcase. Mz Mahogany Chic is an independent fashion magazine out of Washington DC, they have been promoting the show, and recently did interviews with all of the finalists. You can check my interview, click the image above.

I get fixated on a subject and do as much of that subject as possible, and then once I get bored, or something else grabs my interest I move on. I tend to start a lot of project, and never really finish them. Something that has taken me a while to get over, and I still do it from time to time. But, I have gotten better about finishing thing though nowadays. So.. BANG BANG on to the next…
