Graphic design has been a hobby of mine for around 8 years now, I do a lot of things such as posters, banners, and also album art, primarily in Photoshop. My style makes heavy use of brushes, different blending effects, and photomanipulation.

Each one of these site backgrounds are an example of this. The "home", "graphics", "animation" and "photography" backgrounds are photomanipulations with brushwork, the "music" background is an unedited photo, and the "film" and "web" backgrounds are both fractals which were edited in Photoshop.
