To me, a liberal arts education isn’t about being super qualified for a high paying job. The liberal arts teach a way of thinking, a mindset, a worldview. I think the most important thing Wooster can teach is that a student is never done learning. I came to Wooster thinking I would be an English or Philosophy major and concentrate in creative writing. I never thought I would leave Wooster with an Honors I.S. as a Studio Art Major. My I.S. was a graphic novel called FISH THAT DON’T EXIST, and I’m still working on it. I also received the George Olson prize in art. Since Wooster, I’ve done a lot of freelance work, including album covers and posters. My highest profile piece is a portrait of David Suzuki for the David Suzuki Foundation, Canada’s largest environmental nonprofit. I’ve completed the drawing and been paid, but it hasn’t been “launched” yet. I’m really excited for it. At the end of last year I was hired as an illustrator-designer for an Art & Technology Studio called LifeFormations, after someone there saw my website (which one of my more technologically literate college friends made for me). I’ve had to develop a whole new style for the world of entertainment. I also sell my art online, at a website called Society6.com. My future plans are to publish the never ending graphic novel that I started as a junior for my Junior I.S., and continued as a senior and am still hard at work on. It is currently titled ‘The Wonderful Plague.’ While working for LifeFormations is awesome, I’m considering graduate school. All I want to do is share the worlds in my head, the stories I’ve invented, so that’s what I’ll do, eventually, somehow, no matter what. Senior I.S. doesn’t end on I.S. Monday. It never ends. Senior I.S. is just the beginning of that life-long project called having a dream. Wooster fosters dreams, and mine’s thriving.
