Hello all, I am Raven Jones.
I attend Louisiana State University in Shreveport. Graphic design is my major however in the following months, I will be enrolled in an intensive-study animation course and earn a certification. I also work at the school's University Center as a student graphic designer.
I freelance and work on my own personal projects. I plan to volunteer at local art galleries, participate in local art shows, gain an internship at a local ad or marketing agency--anything that will add to network of people I need in order to gain inspiration, motivation, prospective clients and close contacts.
Eventually I would like to establish my own unique art salon/bar to promote the talented young artists. Or accomplish my girlhood dream of working as an artist for Lisa Frank, Inc.
