Something the economy has me acutely aware of is the cost of art materials. Thanks to tips from Bonny Lhotka, one of the authors of Digital Art Studio, I have begun using MDF (medium density fiberboard) as a substrate for my artwork. Using an alternative digital printmaking process, the digital collage is transferred to the MDF and I'm so happy with the results. One example is above. It's part of a triptych. The other 2 pieces are drying. I'll post the full piece when it's done.

Wow this is amazing! It really packs an impact!

I absolutely agree with Seth. I have Bonnie Lhotka's 1st DVD, and have been following the tremendous originality and creativity of the members of Digital Atelier for years.
You do them proud with your work!

Thanks Seth and Carol. Yes, Bonnie's DVD is great...and I don't know where I'd be without the Digital Art Studio book...I'd have lots of flat prints wishing for some texture, I guess!
