Alright, it's time to finally start one of these things.
I am graduating from University of Nevada, Las Vegas in December with my B.A. in Fine Arts (concentration on Printmaking.) I haven't been placed in an art-related field of work yet, and I don't feel I am quite ready for grad school--I rushed into UNLV without a clear idea of what I needed to learn, and I came out with skills I'm not entirely confident in. If I'm gonna go to grad school, I want to research it thoroughly and go with a very clear direction in mind.
So the next year of my life will be dedicated to solving these problems--either I will find work, or I will prepare myself to get the most out of grad school. And both of these goals will be accomplished by wicked mad practice and self-analysis.
I was pretty much trained in studio art, but I would like to do some kind of production art, whether it's graphic design, drafting, concept art or illustration. All of that means getting better, faster, and more consistent.
I have a DAportfolio set up: http://patrick-halm.daportfolio.com
I'm gonna photograph my actual sketchbook, but for now, I'll post this digital painting I did in september. It was mainly a figure study and painting practice. (I think I used posemaniacs for composing the figure.)
