In my earlier years of college, I did not think much of
graphic design or even of art itself. I majored in computer
science my freshman year. However, I always wondered
how art on computer was created. Therefore, I began to
experiment. I began with a free program called “Paint” which
comes installed on personal computers. As I used this program,
I began to become more interested in art on computer and
then decided to change my major to graphic design. I took
the first class that was offered in graphic design, which was
an intro class. I realized that this is what I wanted to do for
the rest of my life. I learned a couple of different programs
such as “Photoshop”, “Illustrator”, and “Quark”, which are
all used for different things. I created posters, graffiti, book
covers, CD covers, and digital character coloring within these
programs. However, I found that I work best with typography.
This could be a result of the graffiti part of my life. I have
a good eye for type and its placement. On the other hand,
my least favorite thing to work with is characters and human
figures. I have a tough time with the proportion of the body
and facial features.|
I feel that my work complements my personality. It tends to be very simple and straight to the point. However, sometimes it can be the total opposite and turn out to be a crazy, confusing work of art. I usually just sketch whatever I think about at the moment. Recently I have been trying to let my work tell a story about myself or about something that resembles my life.
