About Me

Yes, my username used to be 'ProDesigner'. I understand the word 'professional' however, is a heinous word for many here, and it sets them up to find fault with me. So I've changed my username.

Words are crude implements, difficult to get perfect, easy to get tied in knots with, and often - usually - misunderstood, which is why 'tolarence' is the best word of all.

What I do -

  • Illustration - both vector & raster. Core to my personal projects, plus some paid assignments.
  • Graphics - mostly for paid assignments and print, including large format. Quite a lot of info-graphics, and of course, branding.
  • High-end(?) photo retouching, and a specialty in complex multi-photo montages mostly for paid assignments.

My workflow has always involved moving around the core design apps on a daily basis (Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop / Publisher, Designer, Photo). btw, I've labelled the "all three apps workflow" as 'professional' in historical posts, for want of a better label and out of naively thinking everyone understands it's not a personal judgement on abilities or status. By all means suggest a different label.

History as a studio manager for my sins.

Business owner and business trouble-shooter, which is why this whole thing is fascinating.
