In my four years at art school we had the usual assignments: book covers, magazine spreads, posters and so on. None of these projects ever came close to preparing me for the work I’ve done recently here at Hile. This latest project took patience, a careful attention to detail and incredible daring.
The other day I Photoshopped Julie’s head onto Lady Liberty. And this was not my first head transplant. I’ve gotten eerily good at taking someone’s head and putting it on someone else’s body. If you look at our staff biographies on the new hiledesign.com you’ll see my work in the area of digital transplantation surgery:
- Art has been transformed into Fred Astaire
- Eric could easily be mistaken for a trail boss
- Monica is Miss Remington
- Mary pops out of a box to the tune of “Here We Go ‘Round the Mulberry Bush”
- Beth is holding her own against canine opponents
- Katie is a face in the crowd (OK, that was an easy one)
- I’m the Hile Gothic
- Dave is moderating a Nixon-Kennedy debate
No, art school did not prepare me for having this much fun on the job.
