About Me

About Me

After Graduating in Summer 2011 I decided to further my education by attending City Tech. I took classes from my previous school, Art and Design Highschool. I had cartooning and animation classes as well as computer software classes. Within those classes I learned how to create storyboards, character profiles, and how to use Photoshop and Illustrator. My goals for my academic career is to become a professional artist. I was always interested in anime which made me start drawing in the first place. I always try different styles to make my drawings look its best. I practice non stop until I reach that level of professional. My favorite artists who motivate me to be more creative are Takahito Harada and Alex Ahad. My interest in graphic communication is to learn how to manage printing comics if I decide to enter that business, Illustrating, and making my own website. My lifetime goal is to make a living out of drawing.

Letter Printing

Letter Printing

I found the letter printing demonstration interesting. The letters had to be handpicked and organized in order to make sentences. There were lines which were used to make spaces and lines to form more sentences. There was a wooden panel where you place the page so you can print with the machine. There were various ink colors to use for the page. The actual machine was pretty big and safe to use. The ink had to be smeared on a plate that will use the desired color to print. The inking process took a while because the plate had to be completely covered with ink. There was a roller that does the actual printing because that’s what contacts the plate and paper. After the plate was finally covered the paper had to be placed where the roller touches it and then it printed. A lever had to be pulled towards you to print and then back to stop printing. By repeating the process a large amount of papers can be made in a minimum amount of time. You just need to be efficient.
