…And Now a Short Break

I’m taking a quick break today from my regularly scheduled blogging to blog-brag a little about the my partner’s amazing skills when it comes to photography and graphic design. I’m going to try really hard not to get too mushy, but he’s got some amazing skills and is brave enough to choose to work (as a freelancer) in an industry that is misunderstood, similarly to libraries (my phone has a camera, why do we need to hire a photographer?), and excel at what he does. Kriston is an editorial photographer working in Philadelphia (and surrounding areas) and has been dappling in illustration for the past month or so working on his graphic design skills, which means creative projects that he gets to have fun and play around with while trying new techniques. In reality, he gets the chance to combine his love of music, puns and illustration to create this awesome graphic for the upcoming eclipse.  A lot of libraries are offering programs about the solar eclipse and are handing out solar eclipse glasses, so if you’re so inclined, you are more than welcome to use this image (please credit him!).

To learn more about how he created this image, check out his Behance page to see the step-by-step process for creating something like this (it’s way more advanced than I imagined it to be). And follow him on Instagram (@kjbethel) for a chance to check out some of his amazing photographs.

And stay tuned, because tomorrow we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled program…
