'Healing' In The Digital Age

A Therapeutic Line
Where I previously used to work we often used to discuss how in the midst of all the craziness of doing adverts, flyers and posters while balancing about 3 or 4 other projects, plus whatever else was being handled at the time, we would often find it a very calming experience to be given a retouching job. You can just shut yourself away in your own little clone tool world! It can be a very therapeutic way of spending your time...
So it was really nice when Dawn Rey from I.B.Tauris approached me about doing a retouching job. You can see the before and after below. We also did a little bit of colour correction on the image too. The Image will be used on their Catalogue cover. 
I.B.Tauris publish some very interesting books, check out their website :
