No more Photoshop Collages

I am going to get my hair cut today. I am pretty excited, because it really needs it. And i have been avoiding getting my hair cut in starkville because i haven't known who to go to.
Finally i got a good recomendation that i trust a bit. Tokros.
I will see. Obviously my trust is not too deep.

We have been cleaning out the small town center. it is looking good. I finally have storage for my stuff.

This week, I am working with cliffton on the graphics for the bypass guidelines for Mississippi. It is a pretty cool project. we are getting to make these graphics in a way i have never done before. I have always photoshopped things to hell and back, and this time i am going to be using illustrator mostly. I have to. Cliffton, the graphic designer of the Small Town Center is making me. He says he is tired of the photo shopped collages. So, good for me, because i am learning how to illustrate, and good for cliffton because he doesnt have to see my photoshop collages.

Things to do today.
Come up with a filmstrip of sorts that show what we are going to be illustrating.
Defining exactly what the individual graphics are going to be
defining the way the illustrations will look
Get my hair cut
