Hello! My name is Dorothy Timan, but please just call me Dorie. I am a recent grad from IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis). I graduated from the Computer Graphics Technology program.
Early on in the 5th grade I discovered manga and anime. It was then I knew I wanted to be an artist. Each day I would slave over lined pieces of paper, attempting to make my scribbles look like Arina Tanemura's beautiful illustrations. It was soon I discovered that I had my own style. I embraced it like a long lost friend. Art classes were a luxury for me. I did not take a formal art class until I was a freshman in college. I did however spend four years in the CGT program in my high school. I was making mugs, mouse pads, stationary, and even my graduation pamphlet. In Design and Printing presses were my life. But I still found the time between busy a schedule and tons of out of school activities to draw. Drawing and art are my life-blood. I am still improving, I still have a long way to go. Every day is a new adventure and a new skill learned when it comes to art.
