The Fun of Graphic Designs - About the Author
By accident I found I had some natural ability for graphic design, but first I must start at the beginning. The dust on a pile of old, unpublished manuscripts gives away the length of time I sat behind the keyboard. With the bulk of my work consisting of picture books, to save money I drew the illustrations myself. One day while looking over a drawing, I decided to add a background to appear more like walls inside a house. What took me by surprise, I actually enjoyed making backdrops. So I added them to other pages as well. Suddenly, I did not want to stop with these graphic design ideas, it was becoming fun. I immediately put all writing projects aside for the next three months.
Three years ago, was when I made my first background design for a manuscript. Now there are hundreds of sample designs. Experimenting on ideas for stationery, backdrops, notebook covers, cloth, mugs and a array of various other items, graphic designs has turned into a wonderful hobby. It has become a close second pastime to my love of writing. I foresee a future website and plans to make this another career.
