My name is Micheal R. Eudy, a.k.a. Polygrinder, a.k.a Maverick Mentor. I am the Senior Professor in the Media Arts & Animation Department and the Game Art & Design Department at The Art Institute of Dallas. In my 36 years of teaching there, I have had the opportunity to collaborate and mentor some very talented artists. I take no credit for their art nor their successes. It is something they themselves worked very hard for and their dedication is evident in the artwork I post here. The purpose of this DeviantArt portfolio is to show a collection of the artwork that these highly talented dedicated individuals produced while we shared our lives together for a brief moment in time. They enriched my life with their diverse creative spirits and their maverick personalities as they forged the path of their future. I hope you appreciate their work as much as I do.
I would also like to acknowledge my colleagues who also were instrumental in mentoring these students. No man is an island and it takes a village of wisdom to accomplish the task. Department Director Stephen Steinbach, fulltime instructors Norma Klingler, Johan Klingler and adjunct instructor Mark Leon.
