Hello! My name is Dorothy Timan, but please just call me Dorie. I am a Senior at IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis). I am currently in the Computer Graphics Technology program. I had the wonderful experience of living in Germany for a year and it had changed my life for the better.
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.
I am currently perusing a career in animation. I would prefer more on the TV animation side, but I am up and willing for anything. I have already had a interview with Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, so I am hopeful I will be getting a job after I graduate. When I am not applying for jobs, I am working on my YouTube channel. I post my sketch book tours as well as speed paints and my personal tips and tricks.
