About the artistArt curated by
Words from jimiyo:
Wow, check out Dan's work. It's made for print but this design translates very well into apparel design. It's a got the new car smell to it. Dan is fresh into college, but it's obvious he's already got a ton of talent, and originality.
Tell us about this design:
This is a design I made on my free time between classes and homework. It
is in part inspired by retro sci-fi designs from the 80's. I also
incorporated my liking for explosions of random geometric shapes. My
hope is that it will inspire other people to create art.
Tell us about yourself:
I am 18 years old and from New Jersey. I am currently in my first year
at the School of Visual Arts in New York City majoring in Computer Arts.
I like drawing, photography, street art, snowboarding, and ice cream cake.
How long have you been designing on the computer?
I first got into digital art when a friend introduced me to Flash when I
was about 13. I started to make crude animations and put them online
where the feedback I received motivated me to do more. Soon I was
experimenting in other programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator and by
the time I was half way through high school I knew that this was the
direction I wanted to keep going in.
MAC or PC?
Both! Well, the computer I use now for most of my art is a mac, but I
could never reject the PC after all those years growing up playing
Commander Keen, Lemmings, and Sim City 2000.
Any shout outs?
To my family and friends for inspiring and supporting me!
