Artist | Student | Traditional Art
My name is Jake, I'm 28 years old and I want to be an artist. I don't want to imply that this is the only thing I want to be in life, nor that I might not want something different in the future, but right now that is what I want to put my energy towards.
Art is such a broad term, so let me be more specific. I'm speaking of visual arts: traditional mediums like drawing and painting as well digital art. I am interested in creating single complete works in a wide variety of styles. I am also very interested in sequential art that tells a story (comics that is). My background is not vast, I started drawing only a few years ago, beginning with no experience and gaining what skills I could through a few community college courses. I have a long way to go but that's part of what makes this so exciting.
I believe in the wonder of process and the power of a community. My hope is to use those things to grow as an artist. I hope that my sharing the work I am doing and the progress I am making will generate discussion, critique, advice and collaboration. I hope to avoid simple "like button opinions", I want to know why you like something I do, or why you don't, what I could do to make it better, how it makes you feel, or what it inspires you to create. I want this experience to be as much about you as it is about me.
