Digital Damage

Photoshop Presets, Patterns: Digital Damage

Make the most of a bad situation, I say. Back in the day before I learned to save every 3 minutes, I would sometimes work for hours without saving. On many occasions I would inevitably lose some work as a result of my laziness. One file got corrupted somehow during the crash and when I went to reopen the file, what I saw is this image. I was devastated at the time but refused to waste the opportunity to recover something from the experience. I saved the file as a JPG and it ended up being the background of several other pieces of… art.
