Photoshop Converts Cake

ctrl-z Shalanah Backus Student Cake

Commercial Art is perhaps my favorite class to teach. Students learn about Photoshop, design and Illustrator. It could not be more fun. I also was blessed in having a great group of students, who became huge fans of the computer programs we were using. It was one of their birthdays and another classmate created this AWESOME cake with “Ctrl – Z” on it. It is the “undo” button on Photoshop, Illustrator and many other programs. Love it.

Working on it…

I started a Commercial Art site for my high school class, but now I have expanded. It now includes all classes I teach. See it here! (

It is going to take a while, but I am slowly going to upload galleries onto the Waconia Site of student work and make a new – with only my artwork and a link to my teaching site. Goal for summer 2011. But you can see it’s all a work in progress.
