Alberta Street's Last Thursday

Alberta Street knows how to party and if you are an artist you won't want to miss out on this great opportunity to get your name and your art out there.

For instance, next time I will use less than 50% of the trace bitmap effect that makes the image look like a cartoon. I will have to experiment some more. Once I perfect the technique, I plan to try my hand at making a tutorial about it. Stay tuned.…
