Graphics 21-Dec 3rd Thurs 6:15PM Manalapan Branch of Monmouth Library at 125 Symmes Dr Enough about graphics work what about graphics play? Narrative: “Whether we are professional graphic artists, designers, or photographic editors, or we just dabble in computer graphics, sometimes we need to take time to play without a goal or endpoint, with the tools found in various graphics applications, like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator or the GIMP and InkScape, to not only discover what the tools in those applications can make but also allow your creative self to express itself without limits. Lee Maxwell will demonstrate what creativity he has using some of the applications mentioned above, and will welcome contributions from other Graphics Workshop regulars about how they play and create.”
