I'll go first

1. Siwshersplitter aka Rcane aka ?
2. 23
3. From the 707 (Santa Rosa) but recently moved down to the 408(San Jose)
4. I started doing computer graphics like 3 years ago but I didn't get into other types of art untill less than a year ago.
5. I've been going to school for way to long. AA in liberal arts, 4 certificates, and now I'm working on my BFA in Graphic Design. I've done a couple album covers, a few websites, and some flyers and posters.
6. I'm workin on creating a portfolio to get my self into the graphics program at SJSU, but for now I have www.rcanedesign.com it's still under construction but it has already gotten me some work.
7. I do, album covers, web design, flyers, photography, logo's, etc...
8. I usually get my best ideas when I'm distracted from something i'm supposed to be doing, like home work.
9. I try to go for a professional feel while still hanging onto my own unique traits. I like clean, but sometimes gritty is cool too. This is a hard question to answer.
10. My best skill is learning. If I start getting burnt on doing something I will start to learn how to do something else so I can take a break. It gives me a chance to expand my horizons and when I come back to what I was doing I usually have more ideas.
11. I'm fluent in photoshop, but recently I began trying new art media like painting, photography, and drawing (pencil & charcoal). I'm enjoying the new types of art, and it gives me more ideas and experience to draw from in my other work.
12. Snowboarding, music, web design, art, blunts, chillin


here's an example of a drawing I did last semester
post an example of something you have done
