Illustration / Design / Coding

Hi Everyone!

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website, I'm Kenny by the way. I'm an aspiring self-taught individual who likes illustration, design and coding. I’m a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science graduate in Negros Oriental State University. As of the moment, I want to seek growth in the field of web design and development where I can exercise my skills in graphic design and coding because I have less experience in that field. Compared to illustration which I already have more than 5 years of experience.

about

For the past years, I've gained some good experiences in both illustration and graphic design. In those two, I have longer experience in the field of illustration as I worked in a publishing company for almost 4 years as well as doing some illustration related freelance jobs. I started doing freelance way back in 2012 where it helped me expand my experience not only as an illustrator but as well as graphic designer.

illustration

I have almost 4 years experience as a children’s book illustrator within a publishing company, but what I really like to do is character design and fantasy illustration which I seek and practiced as a part-time freelancer. Even though I didn't have any background about fine arts, I learned through video tutorials and following great artists who work for gaming industries. It was 2011 where I started doing illustrations.

design

Aside from doing illustrations, I'm also fascinated by design trends in both web and user interface. Since college days, I've been practicing my design skills to improve in that area. As the years passed by, web design together with mobile first methodology makes it even more interesting to look at. I have less experience in design and I would gladly focus myself towards any opportunity that would help me learn and improve more. I'm kinda thinking to focus on it more because it's my course from the start and make illustration as a hobby.

coding

Even though I was doing illustration related jobs as full-time and part-time, I still put some time to continue reading about new web and coding trends. It's just a good feeling when you create something out of syntaxes to function and work. Currently, I'm into WordPress, PHP and Responsive web design. Many things has been added and it's a long way to catch up with the latest trends but along the way, it'll be a worthit journey. I'm working on blog which will feature small projects that I did.
