Chip and Chick

Just a little illustration in a style I don’t usually use. I have always approached Illustrator with great wariness, but it would be nice to get comfortable with it.

SPARC Hackathon

At the encouragement of my academic advisor, Tom Brady, I joined up with a team to compete in the upcoming hackathon held by Charleston’s SPARC. This past month has been busy, trying to find team members, learn new programming skills, keep up with regular class work, and find time to work on art.

New to WordPress

In the past couple months, I’ve been learning to use WordPress in my eCommerce class at Trident Tech. I’ve made a sample website, am currently working on this, my personal website, and look forward to expanding my catalogue of web design work in the future.
