Perfect Cure, 2010, Giclee print, 24 x 36”
|The pursuit of happiness, for me, is art and anything involving design. Thinking back to high school, I would have never imagined liking graphic design. It was a “push” from one of my teachers that made me take the leap into the wide world of computer graphics and design, and I haven’t looked back for one second ever since. With the huge array of technological advances and constantly changing media, to me graphic design will never have an end. I am extremely interested in mixed media and mixing technology with traditional drawings. Leonardo da Vinci’s perfect anatomical drawings mixed with Helvetica modernism, to me, is beautiful. Mixing the old and the new into one formal piece makes me happier than a Cub Scout at a campfire. Starting my work is a simple process of pencil sketches and brainstorming. Working up to that final piece is a long process with many ups and downs. I could work on a project for hours on end and, if I don’t like it, I’ll dump it. Perfection, in my eyes, is when you add one more element and it ruins the whole thing. There is a stopping point and in the end, a beautiful piece of art. Ever since high school I have been hooked on design and, for me, that will never stop. My six-year pursuit has been continually fueled by enthusiasm and excitement. |
