you find it essential to support Photoshop with third party plugins?
No. If you want to learn
you need to uninstall the plug-ins and create things on your own.
Plug-ins put a date stamp on your images and keep you from using all

artwork is amazing. Many of them has rusted effect with minute details
of machines. This type comes frequently in your art. Is there any
special reason behind that particular subject?
I grew up around a lot
of tools and lived out of town where there was bushes and dirt. My
dad made me pull weeds. He was also a contractor and there was always
equipment lying around. I think most of it comes from my child hood.
Last question. Every artist has
his own philosophy. What is yours?
You can't break the
rules in design unless you first know what the rules are. Educate
your self and show off less.
