Anyway, through the years ive done everything, education wise, to involve art as much as possible, there by, always selecting it as a subject choice. Ive also notice, uncoinciously, i spend most of my apparently 'time wasting' time (where im just on the PC doing nothing) looking at art, visiting artists sites, getting so much inspiration
I am 18, and in college in the UK studying Advanced Level Fine Art; under a teacher who was also my personal tutor for many years, A-Level Physics; so a scientific understanding of the world around us is certainly present, and A-level Computing; programming mainly (i find it a bit boring).
Im very enthusiastic about new technology, in the know about pretty much all the lastest PC components, and from this, ive ended up transfering the creativity i believe i have, through to the computer, where i now work on my newly purchased Intuos3 Tablet, and sometimes give a shot at 3D modelling
I had applied for university to do 'Computer Games Art', though have realised its mostly involved 3D working...and my 3D just isnt strong enough to make a go at it as a career, i would prefer to keep it hobby level. I enjoy 2D art far more also.. the only thing thats held my art back.. is other subjects and out of college life, and i have seen my art suffer for that, and i found a solution !
So now, instead, im applying to do a 1 year foundation diploma in A&D (various paths within this... fine art, graphics design, sculture....) at Art College (1 of only 4 in the UK) which will give me 100% dedicated work time to art, at least 3 hours a week life study from a model, and good footing for a degree at university (not sure of courses as yet, suggestions appriciated !). Also it will determine if its art it is i want to do at all. Since its full time, it will definetly give that taste of having a career in art, but also its not as commiting as university, since its one year, and free
What i want to know, is this the right route im taking to one day become an artist like Yanick Dusseau, Greg Pro, etc... Its where i want to be, and where ive wanted to end up, all my life.. despite the many fads of 'policeman', 'lawyer', 'architect', being an artist has always been the dream i thought wouldnt be that possible (when i was young, i just didnt realise you could make a career from art, since i enjoy it so much, i thought its to good to be true)
