With a background in traditional fine art, illustration, and cartooning, Rhoda began to transfer those skills to the Macintosh in 1989. She demonstrated digital caricature at numerous computer graphics trade shows in the early â€™90s and contributed step-by-step artwork to books on Photoshop and Painter. She wrote Photoshop Effects Magic (1997, Hayden Books) and more recently coauthored (with Sherry London) Photoshop 6 Effects Magic and Painter f/x and Design. This is the fourth collaboration for Rhoda and Sherry.
Rhoda teaches digital art and graphic design at the Center for Electronic Art in San Francisco and at the Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California. She still does on-the-spot caricature at events. Rhoda is a member of the Graphic Artists Guild, the San Francisco Society of Illustrators, and the National Caricaturists Network. In recent years, she played a role in creating fair tax regulations for artists in California. Her portfolios and a cartoon autobiography can be seen at www.digitalpainting.com.
