BFA - graphic design

To me Art is a way of life. Art is a doorway that lets me express the true me and see that nothing is impossible. As a graphic designer, I feel as though I get the chance to use my ability to create what is not thought of. Graphic design is a tool that lets me use my imagination in such a way that lets other people experience my view on the world. In each piece of my work, the viewer gets to experience how I see each passing day. I tend to find myself looking for inspiration all around me, in music, in nature, on the Internet, and even in movies. Artist like David Carson, Saul Bass, and Drew Brophy inspire me because of the impact and affect you get when looking at their work. I also find inspiration when listening to Mumford and Sons, Pink Floyd, and Counting Crows because of the in-depth meaning in their lyrics. The way their music can change your mood or the way it takes you on a journey inspire me to make work with such passion. These artists convey ideas and evoke emotions from their creations, which is what I want my art to do. Graphic design is my pen, pencil, paintbrush, guitar, drum, or instrument that lets me convey my ideas that will evoke more than just emotions.
