Designs

I have always loved art, particularly drawing, painting and calligraphy. I remember distinctly starting to draw in the fourth grade with a friend who showed me anime. I wasn’t very good but practiced every day, I would trace, sketch, shade and color until I perfected my technique. I became very serious about art. Even simple art projects in the fifth grade would be meticulous masterpieces for my younger self.

I was constantly producing fan art, finding new styles to reproduce. Then, in my middle school art class, I was required to produce completely original work using a variety of mediums. I absolutely loved it, being able to create anything you could imagine. It forced me to create a personal technique, to find inspiration then create with what material was available to you.

During my collegiate experience, I was given the opportunity to use the Adobe Suite programs. I started making flyers for organizations using Photoshop. Then, working at The Current Sauce (university’s student-run newspaper), I started learning how to use InDesign and edit photos with Photoshop. Other than the help of my coworkers and a workshop, I am completely self-taught.

After creating my first design, I was amazed how one little thought turned into something substantial. A small piece of colorful art that could be printed.

A few examples of various designs I have done:
