Howdy! Ahoy! Good <appropriate time of day> to you!
My name is Jordan Glen, I am a creative, and welcome to my corner of the web. My main interests in the arts are illustration, animation, and printmaking. I rely heavily on nutrients gained directly from the sun (hot ball, not newspaper).
I am going to take a brief moment in this post to show you what I am all about, starting with some illustration work from the past year. I love comic books and story telling so this is a comic I have made titled “The Expedition”. It is a tale about a group of mice on an expedition to steal cheese from a nearby house. You can see more under the "Work" tab on this website if your are interested.
Animation has always been a big inspiration to me, even as a young child. I remember the day I learnt that someone actually drew animations, It blew my tiny lil’ brain. I have dabbled in animation through university and some in my free time. Here are a couple of my short, experimental animations.
The last thing I want to mention is printmaking. So printmaking, specifically screen printing and lino printing, have been my favourite creative outlet because its conducive to the way I work and has been a big part of me developing a visual style. Here is an overview of some of my prints.
So that’s a little idea of who I am now. I am interested in continuing my journey into printmaking, mainly through Lino printing because I have access to the materials at home. I would love to build my on my illustrative style and improve my skills. I conciser myself quite experienced with PhotoShop but one thing i have never used it if is digital painting. Previously I would use illlustrator to finalise my illustrations but i would like to experiment with digital painting in PhotoShop. Ultimately my goal this year is to pursue the ideas that interest me and experiment with some new mediums and practices.
