Welcome! I can tell by your posts already that you are going to fit right in.
Mostly because you said you don't give a damn about what George W says

We couldn't use wax here in the desert, it would melt on the way to the printer's... we used spray mount; wow when I think how much of that crap I must have inhaled... cutting out pix out of magazines for comps and xeroxing to size and coloring the copies, and sending out for type... and how great it was to be able to fax type requirements, the runner only had to make one trip, to pick it up... Remember the process camera, and how handy the camera room was when you got really upset with something and you didn't want anyone to see you cry? And making out in the camera room, but uh, well, never mind that...
Yes, I loved the tapes! Letraset would get crunchy in this climate too so you had to use it pretty quick. Sometimes you'd get an old sheet and the letter would rub down all in pieces
Yup, those were the days...
Muriel

my goodness, I am loving this...I haven't talked about this stuff for so long...and speaking of typesetting....once I did a program for the Florida Symphany Orchestra, who was sponsoring a concert with Iztac Perlman (sp?)....well, it was to say "recital at ten o'clock" but someone left the "i" out and it ended up saying "rectal at ten o'clock"...luckily it was discovered before the public got to it...ackkk

I did a lot of free lance and remember pulling many all-nighters to get an illustration or mechanical done in time....

and I loved that railroad board that was clay covered...great for mechs...I remember that if you made a mistake with inking you could "scratch it out" with an xacto knife....

and I loved doing those little flaps over the art so it was protected and looked cool lol..

The flaps  I still have a small portfolio of my mechanically pasted up stuff,,,with the nice flaps protecting them,,,so much work,,,craziness compared to the computer generated abilities,,, Spoiled brats of nowaday, Well when I was young we had to walk 2 miles in the snow to pick up our type . Eventually all they will have to do is think it and it will appear all printed out and they will complain about how they used to have to manually enter the information into the computer with their fingers

I've been looking at everyone's stuff and there's so much talent here I can't begin to tell everyone how wonderful their work is! I feel priviledged to be in such company... I had looked at other sites, but there's a lot of crappy art around... didn't feel comfortable joining anything until I came across EBSQ.

Lauren and Heide, we need to do lunch!
Too bad we're all so far away. There are so many fun stories of the good (??) old days of graphics before computers. Your concert program story reminds me of a mailer we did for a local casino. This thing went out to 30,000 senior citizens. Remember how you had to make a folding dummy to indicate to the printer which way things would print? Well, this mailer was around 7x10 , folded once in the middle. At the bottom end, inside, were 2 dollar coupons for free play, side by side across the width. Their backs were supposed to be blank when detached, because they were on the other side of the mailing half. The headline, on the front and across the top, said: "Get a Buck Off!" Well. The printer printed the thing head to toe, so that when you detached the coupons, instead of the back being blank, one of them said "uck Off!" That was the cause of much hilarity in the art department, and much anguish in account services. But I think they got'em reprinted for free...

Welcome Muriel!
I'm a little late saying hello, but I see everyone else gave you a warm welcome.  Nice portfolio.  I especially like Fire & Ice, and Blue Teddy is so sweet!  How old is your daughter?

36, LOL
Thanks, Beth! I should start on pictures of my grandkids...
I'm returning to fine arts after many years in graphics, so most of the stuff in my portfolio is old, but that will change shortly.

Muriel
