How did you get your PSC nickname?
The kids I teach at school frequently call me *rashdog*. I don't particularly care for it, but when I signed up for PSC I was at school and someone suggested it. Before I knew it, it had stuck here too...

What is your real name and age?
Chris. I was born in 1965. (You do the math so I don't have to keep updating this...)

Where are you from and what do you like best about being there?
South Carolina...great place to kayak (gotta watch the alligators, though...)

What do you do to keep the bills paid?
Iím a high school teacher. My degrees are all in English but I teach journalism and a computer ethics class.

What do you do in your spare time?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

How did you find PSC, and what do you like most about the site?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

If you could change one thing at PSC, what would it be and why?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

What other sites, not Photoshop related, do you like to surf?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

What tools do you use to chop?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

What gets your creative juices flowing, how do you create a masterpiece?
When I donít have any ideas, I look at the winning entries of other members. Another thing I do is just start cutting out some part of the picture. Usually in the middle of using the pen tool, a bright light will shine directly above me and a deep, robust voice will announce what the image should look like. Most of the time, though, I will start with one idea only to have it become something completely different by the end. Iím used to that though. I am usually asking myself how can I make this picture even better?

What inspires you?
Usually colors and shapes are my inspiration. I like source images that have lots of textures in them...I like to see other possibilities in the sources.

Do you have a system? Does a chop have to be done a certain way following steps or are you a messy chopper and just go with the flow?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

What style of chop do you prefer to create?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

Filters, brushes and techniques: Which do you use, and not use, and why?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

When do you know that you have it just right, or is it constant changes up until, or after, you post?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

What is the limit to what you will chop?
(...too busy to answer this right now...)

Are there any tips and/or tricks that you would like to pass along to less experienced choppers?
(...too busy right-clicking and pasting to answer this right now...)

What is your favorite type of source image, and why?
(...too busy right-clicking and pasting to answer this right now...)

There is often talk about how the source is used and to what extent it should be. What are your views on all sources, outside source use and animations?
(...too busy right-clicking and pasting to answer this right now...)

What is your preferred resource for outside source images?
(...too busy right-clicking and pasting to answer this right now...)

In your opinion what makes a good chop?
(...too busy right-clicking and pasting to answer this right now...)

(...geez...how many questions are there?...)

Have you ever completed a chop and then decided not to enter it in the contest? If so, why?
(...geez...how many questions are there?...)

After you finish your chop do you just post it or seek opinions of family and/or fellow choppers first?
(...geez...how many questions are there?...)

If some one finds a fault in your work do you change it or stay with what you posted?
(...geez...how many questions are there?...)

What qualities do you look for when deciding to vote on a chop?
(...geez...how many questions are there?...)

Some member prefer not to vote for filtered chops or animations. Is there any particular style/type of chop you won't vote for?
(...you may never know the answer to these questions...)

Time is always a factor, how much time do you spend on a chop and how much time is too much?
(...you may never know the answer to these questions...)

We all love to get votes. Now are you a constant vote checker or do you just let it go and check once a day? (be honest)
