Adventures in Graphics...sorta

So I downloaded the GIMP, a free (in the sense of Open Source Software--which I don't totally understand yet) graphics program that kerravonsen recommended to me. It's been a while since I did ANYTHING in a graphics program, since I tend to prefer the written word for my artistic expressions, so a lot of the last few days has just been getting acquinted with the sorts of things I may be able to do with various tools.

I did find a cool tutorial that's been very helpful: Sam's Teach Yourself GIMP in 24 Hours.

So no icons yet, I don't feel comfortable enough to try making any...but soon!

Yay for learning--I forgot how great it feels to stretch the brain like this.
