This is the main page of my portfolio website. I was able to use the rectangle tool to divide up the page and then add my thumbnails of my work. There just is not much work to show right now. I was able to overlay a couple of textures on the background and then add effects onto the text such as drop shadow and bevel.

This is my book cover for the jazz musician John Coltrane. I wanted it to look dark and moody and the spotlight on the saxophone represents his instrument and the fact that he was inspired later in life by his pursuit of his spirituality. There are a few layers on the cover with the smoky haze and spotlight and a couple other effects put in. I also used the blur brush tool on the front to just add an interesting look to it overall. The type is embossed with a satin effect put on it. I also choose a different color for part of his last name, Trane, as that is what he is commonly referred to as.
The cover as a single file followed by the spine and back.
