dr oblivion exists

Dr Oblivion has either gone into hiding or may have been abducted but we must  keep his virtual profile alive or he may fade into nothing.

We can’t let that happen. Dr Oblivion Exits…

I made this by lazily taking the graphic from the poster on the blog post linked to above. I cut it, adjusted contrast in photoshop and then added a layer from a collage  I made ages ago. In fact I made it so long ago i can’t remember how many photos it is made up from. I do know one was a photo taken at a museum with the word existentialism and I think the other was a self portrait. sorry to be vague – goes to show how useful it is to record the process; ))

This is the collage photo I used. It was clearly crying out for the dr’s image.

    Lou,

    I can;t thank you enough for keeping his memory alive—only three days but it seems like a lifetime. I get horrified sometimes to think how easy it is to let those who have gone fall into the dustbin of memory. We must be strong and keep the light burning.

    Wow, that is really beautiful!

    You are so right about the usefulness of recording the process. When I took my first Photoshop classes my teacher told us to write down step by step how we did everything, and it was so useful I did it for about a year. I have a big 3-ring binder full of Photoshop project notes that include what filter settings I used or how much I moved a slider, etc.. Every once in awhile I still pull it out and refer back as it’s the only way to remember how I created a certain effect, and the notes are over 10 years old.
