Hello! My name is Kevin, and I'm an electrical engineer with a passion for creating original mechanical designs and concept art.Something to think about:
I try to remind myself that pride of oneself and/or jealousy of other artists, especially those better than I am, only hampers the ability to create something new later on. On the contrary, it always amazes me that people "less proficient" than I am often have broader imaginations and an eye for certain details I usually miss. Actively learning, accepting help and constructive criticism, teaching and giving advice, plus motivation on my part, will always build up all sides.
Engineers and programmers do this all the time when they work on collaborative projects: ideas tend to succeed with tight teamwork, and on the contrary, fail when they aren't shared and improved upon. So why not artists? Introverts, move aside...let's create something fantastic together!What's new?
I don't write much here except for art-specific posts; most updates appear in the #MechaDesigners
group journal instead.
Engineering- and project-oriented entries are located at my personal website, PlasmaFire.org
. Drop in and see what's up at any time!Want to use my art?
I'll likely allow it if you ask first, so just send a note (or e-mail, if you know the address) requesting for permission and what you plan to do with it. Most of my pieces are under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 Unported
