Today on the pixelobby podcast we interview Creely of Image Cinematic.

About Morgana Creely of Image Cinematic & our site specialist in "Thinking Outside the Box" for your productions. - Isn’t it just another image? Well no, actually – not for me. - I’ve always been drawn to images that tell stories. Old movies and photographs both hold a fascination for me – I love to wonder what has just happened, or what is about to happen next! These are the kinds of images I love to create. - Digital photography and retouching allows me to create the cinematic stories that I want to tell, and to share.

This weeks pixeLobby podcast we talked to Nathan Wilkerson. Nathan’s native art is done by hand and then he brings it into autocad and does his magic there. He is a perfectionist. So much so that he assists the screenprinters on making sure they align things perfectly for the tshirts. He designs Tshirts, Art cards, Digital prints that are matted, decals for automobiles.

When someone tells Nathan it cannot be done he does not take that for an answer. He will work to find a way. He is also known for not only finding a way but the most efficient with the best quality. As an engineer it helps him think outside of the box too. Like when he started hand carving canoes and working on totem poles - he then would discuss new ways on how to do the projects.
