Sally M. Bode
Sally Bode trained in graphic arts and technical illustration at Glendale College, in Glendale, California. She has worked since 1973 as a graphic artist, illustrator, and technical illustrator. Sally has prepared graphics for book publications, magazines, ads of all sorts, billboards, posters, business cards, signage and product design. She gained experience in AutoCAD when she attended ITT Tech. Although Sally's business requires her to do most of her work in CorelDRAW, she uses Xara Xtreme Pro now at work for all of her illustrations as it is faster and the output is gorgeous. Customers love what Xara can produce. Bode also works in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, QuarkXPress and PageMaker. She loves working in vector graphics. "The more I discover new ways to do what only it seemed Photoshop could once do, the more excited I become over the possibilities." In the past year, Sally has been doing a lot of car illustrations. And although she got pretty burned out drawing hardware when she worked at Lockheed, drawing automobiles has been rewarding and lots of fun. "Many of the techniques useful for drawing cars translate pretty well into drawing other things like would you believe, people!?"
Sally is currently the moderator for CorelDRAW forum at Talkgraphics.com, where she answers questions on mostly on a daily basis.
The work I do daily is primarily preparation of work for print publication ranging from design work on logos, letterhead, envelopes, business cards and brochures and postcards to also include of late many four color calendars. I do however enjoy making animations in Xara, both in traditional .gif format and the latest and greatest Flash formats."
Sally has been married for 30 years and has three sons, two who are in the U.S. Navy and one attending Antelope Valley College in Lancaster, California. Sally and her husband also have an adopted son who recently returned from his third tour of duty in Iraq.
Ms. Bode is also a musician and plays and writes music for the piano and flute and recorder, she also sings and writes poetry.
