The Creative Setup: Natalie

1. Who are you, and what do you do?
My name is Natalie Malik, and I'm an estimator and engineer at a small town door company, but that's just my money-making job. In my spare time I share art and tutorials on my blog, Awkward & Beautiful, and also tend an Etsy shop full of prints and original art.

2. What hardware are you using?
I'm using an HP Pavilion Slimline computer, a 300GB external hard-drive named Simon, a Wacom Graphire4 tablet for illustrations and handwriting, a crappy VADO mini camcorder that I hardly use, and my 3G iPhone (8GB) named Quinn. Oh, and my lovely Canon Rebel XS with a standard EF-S 18-55mm lens and an EF-S 55-250mm zoom lens.

3. And what software?
For internet, I've always used Firefox, and currently running 4.0. I have Photoshop CS3 for photo editing, and Evernoteto keep up with my random bookmarks, notes, and events. For social networks I use Tweetdeck for Twitter, andInstagram on my iPhone.

4. What would be your dream setup?
A new Canon Rebel body with video capabilities (T3i is what I'm aiming for) with a new lens (Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 Wide Angle Lens). And some day, I do wish for a Macbook Pro, because they are so amazing in every way, and I miss having a laptop. Also, a video-editing software that doesn't glitch up constantly (Movie Maker and I are not on good terms right now). Oh, and lets throw in my own personal studio as well. Mmm, that would be nice.

This is a feature in which I invite bloggers and other creative people to share what technology they use to get their jobs done. These interviews are unedited, except for adding links to product pages in some cases. Photos are property of interviewees.

I am always looking for more people to interview! If you would like to participate, please email me at emdismukes[at]yahoo[dot]com. I hope to hear from you!
