Retouching Even the coolest shoes need cleaning up in post. Lately, I have been performing retouching, color correction, background knockout, and shadow creation for Nike’s footwear and equipment. This shot of these special release Air Jordans is just one example of this type of work. These images were created for Southern Comfort’s 2010 rebrand. A ‘hero shot’ of the bottle was retouched and then the newly branded labels were super imposed. For this image I used illustration and photo manipulation techniques to create “cutout” versions of each drink. The image was created for Y&R’s 2009 Miller 64 print advertisement. I assisted Chicago artist Keith Handley with this image. I worked on colorizing the uniforms of each individual player. With this image I added texture, distress, and tactile detail to a CGI car made of lottery tickets. The CGI work was done by Chris Morris and Bruce Long.
