This afternoon I was at Starbucks on my laptop trying to figure out how to use Adobe Photoshop. All of my friends use it to edit their little pictures on facebook. Katelyn Kowalsky happened to walk in and notice that I was struggling with the software and offered to help me. She showed me how to use things such as the eyedropper tool, how convenient the navigator can be, how to manipulate layers, and many more things. It turns out that Katelyn Kowalsky has been doing graphic design work for a few years now and uses several different forms of software to develop graphics.

Katelyn told me that she started drawing at a younger age and that sparked her interest later in life. Coming into a Starbucks and showing someone who was incompetent how to use photoshop probably was not the highlight of her week. But it sure was the highlight of mine. Katelyn taught me how to so so many things in just the course of a half an hour. Katelyn showed me several tutorial websites that I could follow up on afterwards so that I wouldn't be 'stuck in mud', so to speak. 

Before Katelyn left she gave me her contact information and notified me that if I needed any more help with design or other forms of art that she would be glad to assist me free of charge. I found that to be very rare. I mean, I get letters in the mail on a regular basis of companies trying to offer me their services for some outlandish price and Katelyn Kowalsky gave me her expertise for free. There needs to be more people around like her, it seems every one is putting on a front saying their services are free and then come all of the hidden charges. I would put a link in here to her website but she is not that kind of graphics designer who wants to be advertised. This is just a personal story of how one good hearted person helped out another who they seen were struggling. Until next time, live long and prosper!
