Welcome to my Graphic Design Blog
I’m a student at Foothill College in the Graphic and Interactive Design program, working toward my degree in Graphic Design.
The impetus behind starting this blog is to serve as a requirement for my History of Graphic design class. To create a place that allows for deeper investigation of course topics. However I’d like to continue my Blog journey long after my class ends so that I may develop a deeper opinion of Graphic Design as I discover my own particular voice. Besides it’ll be interesting to review how my style evolves and changes over time.
Any way… A blog also provides me with a place for me to shamelessly self-promote and post some of my art as well as possibly get some un-biased feed back that hopefully offers me a wider perspective from the world at large. I’m looking forward to this experiment, this “tribute to my future” so to speak. It’s a beginning exercise in “putting myself ‘out there’ into the wider world where it’s not just friends and family with whom I will be interacting with. Thus my hope is for an honest and exciting exchange of ideas.
With that I leave you with a photograph of, what I think, is a beautiful image of Graffiti. This image was taken near Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The town itself was called Function Junction. I hiked out to an old train wreck where Graffiti Artists were brought in to paint the wreck as it was too expensive to remove it. The artistry was simply stunning.
