Bruce Fraser, noted author, lecturer and the original “Color Geek” is resting comfortably (more or less) at home. Bruce, after a recent speaking engagement in Oslo, Norway with fellow PixelGenius member Martin Evening, suffered a health related issue while traveling home. Upon his return to San Francisco, his wife Angela, in the final stages of training to be a registered nurse, prevailed upon Bruce to seek medical attention.
The doctor immediately plopped Bruce in hospital to begin a series of tests. The testing indicated Bruce required surgery, which was successfully done at UCSF Medical Center on Thursday, October 6th. He was released from ICU on the following Saturday where he remained until today.
Bruce is the author of the highly successful Real World Camera Raw with Adobe Photoshop CS2 (pictured in this photo of Bruce taken by Angela). He is also the co-author of a series of other books including Real World Adobe Photoshop CS2 with co-author David Blatner who wrote to say that the current revision is safely finished and on the way to the printer. He has also co-authored Real World Color Management along with Chris Murphy and Fred Bunting. Bruce has also penned numerous articles, most recently for CreativePro.com.
Bruce indicated that he was still going to be “off-line” for a short period of time but passes along his thanks for all the well wishes he’s recieved. PSN is very pleased to be able to report that Bruce is well on the road to recovery…
