My name is Kyree Cooper, and I am a 1st years Graphic Design student. I am very open minded individual who is willing to learn and be taught the ups and down's, do's and don't of the graphic designing world. I must say that I am very eager to see how my life unfolds. The thought of one day working for a well know company, doing what I love, and designing quality designs/illustrations for them is exciting and motivates me to work harder towards my goal. I'm only 19 and I have my life ahead of me. I cannot wait.
I first got my kick start in Graphic Designing as a Junior in high school, and I had no idea of what it was or what it involved at the time until I attended a vocational technical school where I was shown and taught about the basics of graphic designing. I had never touched Photoshop a day in my life, so things were very confusing for me the first couple of weeks, Im a fairly quick learner so I got the hang of things as the days and weeks flew by. Soon enough I found myself hooked and couldn't wait to get back in the class to work on a new project, or try out a new tutorial that I saw online somewhere (shout out to Abduzeedo). I had never felt so creative than when I was staring at that iMac computer with an array of tools at my disposal and ideas shooting left and right. It was a little overwhelming to say the least.
For all of my life I told myself that I wanted to be a "cartoonist" because all I did back then as a child was draw Looney Toon and Dragon Ball Z characters day in and day out, needless to say I was pretty good despite not having any lessons. People always told me how good I was at drawing and my drawing skills sometimes made other kids jealous. I felt that I needed to do something with this god given talent, why waste it? I would have never thought in a million years that instead of becoming a cartoonist, I would become a graphic designer (in the making). Now I can design and still be able draw. The best pat about that is when combined with Illustrator and Photoshop, they really make my drawings come to life and it's still graphic designing, not two separate things. I absolutely love it. I definitely don't see myself stopping anytime soon. I have so much more to learn.
Feel free to critique any and all of my work. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Guys! Read Less
