Hang on. I think I have a copy of Argh's resume saved somewhere.

Literally, the reason I created a Fark account 11 years ago. Just so I could comment on this PS.

I'd stopped competing in Photoshop contests by 2009 so anything I post will be legit for the topic.

Here's one from a contest I won. The contest was to 'shop some unlikely merit badges. I won with Worf wearing some spiffy metal merit badges on his sash. That was done quickly to ward off others or split the Trek vote. Win or not, I thought this one should have gotten more votes than Worf:

Here's a couple of things a friend and I made in 1973 well before Photoshop. We were in Panama doing a boring office job while in the army -- weather observation quality control for the Tropic Test Center (where stuff to be used in Viet Nam was tested). But we had a Xerox machine with a halftone screen we could put over pictures and copy them. We developed the Dick Nixon Hall of Fame to celebrate our commander in Chief.

When you look at these, remember that they were scanned well after they were made and that the pencil shadings we'd done to balance things out didn't fade, but the original pasted up documents did, so they don't look quite as good as they did in 1973.

Most of my stuff from '09 was crap. This was one of the lesser crappers.

Multi-panel story 'shops were kind of my thing. Here are a couple of my favorites from 2009:

I registered in 2009 so I could start posting in Photoshop contests. Most of my early entries still exist on Imageshack (remember when they were free?), but a hard drive crash the next year wiped out my original files. My first one no longer exists on Imageshack's servers, but here's the second.
