A year ago, my 17 year old son had a serious snowboarding accident, which resulted in a c-6 burst fracture. 90% of people with this accident die or are paralized from the neck down, but my son had a full recovery with no lasting issues. Nothing but a miracle. I wanted to celebrate his recovery by having Melisa take my son's x-ray of his broken vertabrae and add a silouette of a snowboarder jumping off his broken c-6. I wanted it as a graphic to put on a t-shrit. It wasn't an easy job and I had a very specific idea in my head. Melissa would send me a draft; I'd advise; she'd tweak some more and so on several times until it was just right. My son LOVED it (and he is very picky) and the shirts are being printed as I type this. I tried working with 2 other graphic artists and Melissa is the one who got it done and got it done RIGHT.Jan 15, 2016

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?There is no standard pricing. A exact quote is impossible from a description only. An estimate may be given from a description with a firm quote given after seeing the photograph and the complexity of the request. Only upon approval of a firm quote does work begin.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I usually get a scanned copy of the photo emailed to me (or some have brought it to my home to scan). After looking it over, I confirm the price, which is impossible to give from a description only. Upon approval, I prepare a working draft copy to let the customer review it and give suggestions, if wanted. After the customer is satisfied with the restoration or editing, I finalize it and email it back for printing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied Media Design Technology at Davis Applied Technology College and am also certified in Adobe PhotoShop CS4.
