I grew up in the wonderful paradise of Southern California. Art has been with me ever since I was heavily influenced by the works of random street artists and beautiful murals on the walls of downtown Los Angeles. I was always interested on how it would get made and the process it takes to even accomplish such a feat. In additon to the time that I became intersted in Graffiti art, I also discoverd that even my uncles and cousins were a part of that same world. I couldn't resist then, I then began to take my time to learn it as well. I never took art so serious until I came across the design in graffiti, the colors, shapes, and patterns. I never took graffiti as something that I would later utilize in Graphic Deisgn.
When I first picked up some skills, I never considered the thought of making art my career choice. At this time I really thought I was better off being a computer programmer or serve in the military. Around that time I already had moved to Little Rock, Arkansas. I continued my studies in graffiti, but still did not consider art my career choice. After learning a few things about desktop publishing, I started to have interest in Digital Art. Yet I still did not make it my career choice. What changed all this is winning the SkillsUSA pin design for the state. It may not sound as amazing or inspiring as winning a scholarship, but it was a sign for me to not just give art a chance, but give Graphic Design a chance. Ever since then I've fallen into the world of Graphic Design. Now that it is my career choice, I have never looked back at it and regretted the decision I made.
