Escapism is powerful, and video games allowed me to travel to a plethora of worlds and have fantastic experiences impossible otherwise. Video games have not only affected my perspective on art and design, but they have also helped shape my perspective on the world around me.
The form of expression that allows me to give life to the ideas that run rampant in my head. Drawing has always been my go-to activity alongside gaming, and has allotted me an affinity for color relationships, unique forms and acute details. From character concepts to abstract visuals, I love rendering my visions and growing in my craft.
Graphic design allows me to personify any given media, give it a voice, and decide how an audience might receive it. Creating broad concepts and slowly filling in details is such a fulfilling process and allows for the understanding of the design all around us.
