In the past few months we’ve been in the studio wrapping up tracking on our full-length album, With Perfect Aim. I’ve been finished with drums for quite some time, so I’ve been working on all of the collateral. Album art, pins, t-shirt designs and more. Here’s what we’ve got so far:

» Pocket Process

I can only take the same drumset/beer/food pic so many times. So, when this holiday season came around I decided to dig a little deeper with iOS apps for photo processing.
