Photoshop Demonstration

Ken Graning created this digital self portrait on his iMac computer. There is a much larger version on display in the Art Goes Digital exhibit. It was reproduced from the computer file as a solvent ink print that was printed on a large format printer. It was printed on vinyl material and mounted on canvas stretcher bars.

Ken created this image using Adobe Illustrator software which is a vector based software program that creates very crisp flat color shapes and lines that can be reduced or enlarged in size without any loss of resolution.

He studied art at the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, CA, worked as a commercial free-lance illustrator and taught illustration at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
