After reading these posts, I think I’m the old guy.
I’m John, 38, married, two kids and work full time. I’m responsible currently for 4 designers and I do some 3D animation along with all the other responsibilities of managing people and still doing some photo and design work.
I put my self in college at 23 for art. Things aren't always easy but after four years of hard work and dedication to art I came out with a BFA and entered the professional world.
In college I didn’t touch a computer in an art class until my third year, all traditional work the first two years. After school I’ve been primarily digital, but feel a real need to get back to traditional mediums outside of work.
I hope to use this forum along with finding some local workshops to get back to more fine art work.
