Do you like to draw or paint? Use color? Be creative using a computer? Draw cartoons or caricatures of friends? Lose track of time while working? Recent software developments allow individuals to create “Interactive Messages” which include spoken words, motion from video sources and animation, as well as traditional art and type-based documents. Learn traditional skills such as drawing and painting, as well as skills required for computer usage. Making messages is an art. Images may be created, scanned, organized, stored, and “published” using a computer. The artist’s “desktop” is being transformed into a digital desktop for “publishing.” Self-motivation and discipline are important skills to have. Most career choices in this field require additional post-secondary education.
"Whatever it is, aim higher. You can do anything as long as you work hard and tell yourself you are capable. The moment you doubt your abilities is the moment you choose to let fear overrule your true talent." - Student
