The artwork at the right is a piece I submitted to an art show at Midwestern State University in 1998. After a couple of months in the multimedia program, I had a little fun and threw this together. Since it was done on the computer, it was submitted under the “Commercial Art” category where it won 3rd place for that year.
I did all of this while studying for a multimedia major, part of Hirschi’s Magnet program. For the first two years of my studies, under Bill Mahoney, I expanded my artistic abilities. Mr. Mahoney retired and a new person took over the program. For the last two years of my studies, the focus was on more traditional graphics art- websites, web graphics, promotional material, etc.
Since heading off to college, I haven’t worked with graphics at all. I think that is a mistake on my part; the problem now is I need better equipment to run the software. Until I find a large sum of cash on my doorstep, I think I’ll see what the laptop can handle.
