Sophomore draws out success
March 17, 2015
The whole “starving artist” stereotype does not exist when it comes to sophomore Alexis Garrison, a graphic artist and animator passing through her high school career with literal flying colors. After many years of practice and patience, she said she has come far in her artistic abilities and started dreaming big. After a few questions about her future, Garrison explains her plans to succeed:
Q: What do you plan on doing after you graduate?
A: “I want to get a degree at Savannah Art School for graphic design and animation.”
Q: Why do you want to go into graphic design?
A: “I love drawing; I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember. I like being able to make something unique and get positive feedback from it.”
Q: Why do you want to go into animation?
A: “It’s sort of my passion, I guess. I always liked cartoons.”
Q: If you were to get a job animating, where would you like to work and why?
A: “I wanted to work at Disney, that’s every animator’s dream, but they stopped their animated movies, it’s all in 3D now. Their last animated movie was Princess and the Frog and they sort of left animating.”
Q: Why did you want to work for Disney?
A: “It was one of the biggest animation studios.”
Q: How would you rate your work? How do you take feedback?
A: “I don’t rate my art, I base that on what other people say. As for feedback, I like to have positive feedback and constructive criticism.”
