i'm going to include the good, the bad, and the ugly in this sketchbook, so you guys will get to see what my artistic skills are really like, not just the good stuff. that should probably go without saying, but i'm writing it out as a goal now so that i will be more likely to actually do it.
EDIT: Biography I'm going to include a bit of a bio here, more than what is in my profile. I'm a dual major at Utah Valley University, working toward a BS in digital media (animation) and a BFA in visual arts (illustration). I would like to eventually find a nice studio to do concept art, illustration, 3D modeling/surfacing, and FX for. In the mean time, I don't mind doing the occasional graphic art, video editing, or similar contract.
I have always been inclined to art; back in grade school and high school, I'd get in trouble for turning in a homework assignment that didn't have any homework done on it, but was covered in doodles front and back. My junior and senior years of high school, I decided that I liked to paint with oils, but that I didn't like brushes. So I finger painted and used a palette knife. Now I'm trying to go back and learn how to use brushes, something I should have done years ago.
I love the outdoors, especially hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing––though I haven't had much time for any of those over the last few years of school.
I served for four years in the United States Marine Corps as an infantry rifleman. As accident-prone as I am, it was a miracle that I survived. But I did, and I learned a lot from it.
I have a wife and three kids, one with down syndrome, the other two with just plain crazy. They are awesome, and I am a lucky guy to be able to live with and associate with them.
That's me in a nut shell.
