MY THOUGHTS

For me, being part of this book is an amazing distinction. It also makes me think more about my art and my daily job (which is the same :) from wider perspective. What it will be like in 3-5 years? Some of my artworks printed in Adobe Master Class were done 6 years ago – and some of them are the most recent pieces. A real cross-section of my works!

If you’re a photographer or digital artist this book may interest you. You can download sample pages includes chapter on Jaclyn Corrado from Peachpit pages. I’m going to write short review as soon as I receive a copy. So if you’re irresolute – stay tuned for more info.
