Part of the final exam for my Art History class this semester was a 5-page paper about how 19-20th century art is reflected in my own artworks. Well, because I’m not officially a studio artist (painting, sculpting, etc.) I felt like I needed to inform my professor that web design was my “artwork” and I wasn’t sure how to write an essay on the subject she requested. I was able to convince her to let me write a paper on a slightly different topic- what influenced me to start designing websites, and why I chose to earn my degree in a related major (graphic design).
In case you didn’t know, I’m currently earning my BFA in Graphic Design/Advertising. I’m in a Senior Studio class which requires students to complete a portfolio book, filled with the best content they can pull together. I was initially having a little trouble filling my book (mostly because my best work is websites and the professors want various types of design), but eventually I got back on track and started producing some really cool new stuff. I’ve decided to share these with you all over the next week, with this post specifically featuring my latest series- “Movie Math”.
