I thought I'd share some of the graphics that I've put together recently. These have been a culmination of a few months work.

You may have guessed that I love "art deco" and this has been a focus during the creation of my graphic designs. The following image is one I completed during the past day:

Based on the shape of his chin, I have a sneaking suspicion that the gentleman above may well be an extremely young Fred Astaire.

I've spent considerable time re-colouring and retouching the black and white photos that I'd found - sometimes it's got to be a labour of love, or I might just go crazy! Here is one I completed yesterday. The image of the dancer I undertook a few months ago, selecting and colouring each individual pearl by hand! And finally yesterday, I was able to create an appropriate background for the dancer to shine from. Of interest is the fact that the poor dear had rather a largish nose, which I trimmed, adding in the obscured eyelid and lashes.

There are now more than 1,600 items in the Art Deco section of my store, with lots more gorgeous black and white photos to work on yet.

So, time now to catch my breath (and a little bit of shut-eye).
