During our most recent Maker Monday at the Albright Memorial Library, we learned about digital art. Chris Hughes is a digital artist who sells his pop culture pastiche tributes online as Peter Parker PA, peterparkerpa.com, We learned about the geeky world of digital art mashups, from sketching out concepts through completing designs and building an audience online.
Interested in getting started with digital art? Chris demonstrated his work while using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, but recommended these lower cost or free software options.
