Art has always been one of the things that I loved, when I was young I would draw cartoon characters, color them with crayons and post them all over my bedroom wall. I didn’t know what I was going to be when I got older but I knew it had to involve my, young and developing artistic expressions. When I went into my last year of Jr. High school I took a digital media class, I had no idea about what the class was about but I knew it had something to do with art. In that class I got to see what Photoshop was and how it allowed you to manipulate images I was hooked! I knew right then and there I wanted to be a part of this, it opened up a whole new world for me the possibilities of what you could do with it were truly endless.
It’s been a long time since that moment in my Jr. High class, and I have started to learn more and more about myself as an artist while growing and developing my skills. One of the things that I have learned so much about in college is font type. It’s something that a lot of people take for granted, but now it has truly become an art, because it is. The teachers have taught me the importance of font, hierarchy, perspective, form and many other things and I try to put all of these things to work in my projects. I have started to develop my own style and process of taking an idea, and making a very impact full, yet simple image out of it. I like to make my work unique with emotion and creativity, it makes my work come to life, it becomes a thoughtful design. I learned a lot of this in Drawing 1, to think outside the box to make art honest because that’s what people like honesty.
I have been to the art exhibitions and I've seen the work of many students in the BFA program I know how much this program helps students hone their skills. I know what getting into the program means and how much it can help me reach my true potential. I love design, I love learning and developing new skill sets as an artist and I know I’m ready to take the next step in my journey.
