When I think of something I love, I think of something that makes me smile, laugh, feel accomplished and after much thought, even angry at times. I would love to earn a living drawing, writing, and playing video games with the intention of making animation. People enjoy things that have an escapist, emotional quality so they don’t have to be in the logical, problem solving world all the time. The feelings I receive are the same feelings people get when they occupy themselves with a TV show or game that means something to them. I want to make work that I would enjoy so I wouldn’t go with the intention of changing the world directly. I only hope to show stories that would motivate and entertain people. One goal to make this reality is to buy the software needed to make my own stories. With the drawing and coding technology, I want to create my own work and be able to make it move on screen. I also need to learn how to use any foreign software; the aspect of writing code for a program is a tremendous task so it’s essential to learn the language and dynamics of the 3D world. With that, I would watch and interact with lots of games and media to get inspiration and join a studio or company to meet other like minded people that have the capability to help me.
