My name is Max. Art has been a part of my life ever since I can remember. My passion for it extends beyond all other passions I have in life, and I seek a carrier in the field as a Concept Design Artist, where I will hopefully attend Northwest Collage of Art in Washington, 30 miles outside of Seattle. I'm looking forward to that day, and having a life learning about art. For now I'm a high school sophomore, thinking constantly of the art world. Everything I see in life I imagine how I would paint or draw it. I see every color in an object where most people see one. I see shadow, detail. I can't see shapes the way most people see shapes, I can't think in terms of star or circle, though I know what they are. My mind is too abstract- so abstract to the point where when I see a tree, I don't think of it as such. I don't see the tree, I see the shape, shadows, colors, details, and I think, "How would I paint this tree? How would I show that there is amber in the leaves, indigo in the bark? How could I shade it to make it jump off the page?" Art is always on my mind, and I love that about me!View more of my art at!UPDATE (Sept. 28): This year I am required to do something called a Concentration Project for my art class. I have chosen the subject of angels, so as each of the twelve pieces is finished, I will post them here for you to see. I may even post some concept sketches of the project, to show where the piece might end up. I look forward to sharring my works with all of you here! I also have a writers page at Check it out. I like Writing and drawing. I love the arts.
