dc.descriptionCapstone contains the artist's statement, a list of works, and images of works.
dc.description.abstractThe artist's statement: As an artist and graphic designer, I appreciate the fact of how there are endless possibilities and routes you can take to accomplish a successful design or piece of art. For myself, I mainly take inspiration from my roots of the Japanese culture. Three generations have passed since my great grandfather immigrated to the United States; in my work, I strive to be a part of "the" different generation-the first to break out of the Asian stereotype and show the world what carefree can be. Throughout my pieces, I tend to use whimsical techniques along with bright colors and contrast. I plan, research, sketch and examine what concepts exactly need to be in play to be a clear and effective piece of artwork and I love seeing the creation's artistic and production process in the end. The communication between the viewer and the artist is very important; with the use of color, line, contrast, positive & negative space, composition and typography, utilizing these elements, like a puzzle, forms the "big picture." Assembling the final pieces together to create one whole image is my favorite part. Seeing the whole puzzle, taking a step back and a deep sigh of relief is what my goal is for every project. My influences come, not only from my culture but also from modern digital artist, Android Jones and my aunt, Karen Wells. Android Jones' visual style is entirely unique with the digital world. His vivid colors involving digital paint and vectors inspire me to be a better designer and artist. Wells has been an artist since I can remember and her work has inspired me to carry on the Japanese culture through art. Besides the influences, designers who are hardworking and humble inspire me the most and encourage me to be a better designer at the end of the day. I could not ask for anything better.
