Why Digital Yarbs?
Yarb is a southern dialectal variant of herb. An herb as defined by Marriam-Webster dictionary is “a plant or plant part valued for its medicinal, savory, or aromatic qualities.” As a graphic designer I produce Digital Yarbs, digital elements that that are valued for their savory qualities.
I have a little bit of everything here. Hopefully you will find something you enjoy.
Intimate History Tours
Intimate History Tours sprang from an Adobe Photoshop graphic novel I created using James Madison as a fictional character. The graphic novel became too long and challenging, so I decided to focus on shorter blog posts with different personages from history. I visit a historical location and then “Photoshop” a virtual tour in which you and I get to meet folks from history.
The Madison Project
It all started with a graphic novel aimed at a Star Trek, Star Wars fan base who may not otherwise consider historical fiction. One could read this novel and get a historically accurate account of James Madison intertwined with a good science fiction story. The Madison project is a series of blog posts featuring select images from that effort along with a few tutorials as well as an intimate history tour with Madison, his wife, Dolley and a Second Amendment meme centered around Madison.
Another Photoshop hobby of mine is restoring and colorizing old photos.
Blast From The Past
Blast from the past is a series of post about tidbits from the past that I find interesting. Anything could show up here!
All things Presidents of the United States.
All things “Old Cars.”
