I’m honored to be selected for the juried alumni show at Northern Illinois University. My digital drawing on display was drawn on an iPad with an Apple Pencil. “Spearit” tells a story of how the pencil is the spear of creativity and the creative spirit that pushes neurons to spark and spear it.
I graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications or Graphic Design. My time at NIU was filled with many art and design projects as well as deadlines and late night creating. I’ll always remember the art building with its many floors, rooms, smells, stairs, and opportunities. The teachers were great and they helped shape my future because I am currently a senior graphic designer for eci-design.com and also draw portraits throughout the week.
