A re-working of an existing piece. This was one that I always liked. The concept was conquering, or taming numbers, never really being a numbers guy and having a son who has struggled with math in the past, it was an idea that I could get!

I did the original art in Illustrator and it turned out well.

I used the "export" feature in Illustrator to export it to Photoshop and save the layers. I used a blur filter in the background to create a greater sense of depth.

A cool fashion illustration from my collection, that dates from 1916. This was done by a man named Samuel Nelson Abbott and it appeared in the Saturday Evening Post.
