I’m always a bit amazed at the misconceptions that exist about Graphic Design (and Computer Science for that matter). So many students think Graphic Design is all about computer graphics but don’t appreciate the importance of having fundamental skills in drawing. I’ve crushed a few dreams over the years when someone is shocked that they have to actually draw with something so analog as a pencil.
As a side note, that collage monstrosity was created by me way back in the day… something I was required to do for my 9th grade Creative Writing class. Thanks to my wife for the girly writing she added for Britney.
