An artist does not simply draw or paint pictures, nor do they simply write prose or sculpt. Artists create worlds, build civilizations, and illustrate the beauty of life through the visual interpretations of their imaginations. To be an artist is a powerful thing. One of the best examples how artists express this power is interactive media. Video games have been a part of my life for years, and in modern times, they have become quite a popular pastime to many others. However to people like me, the artist, they are more than just a pastime. They have become a powerhouse of artistic development and story-telling. These games not only entertain, but they inspire, teach, and open the eyes of their audiences.
I have committed my life to becoming an artist and creating the very things that inspired me to pave my life path. To be a creative mind in the video game industry is an aspiration I work to achieve every day of my life. The inspiration I gained from playing and studying games is unmatched to anything else I have felt in my life. My wish is to give back to the industry and help create even more works of art and in turn inspire others to follow the same path. I want to be able to teach the world through the art of interactive media, hopefully giving video games a much brighter reputation in the future. I want to inspire other artists, just as I have been inspired.
