About Me

My name is Keelan Rodgers. I was born and raised in the city of Chicago and have lived there all my life. I am very passionate when it comes to learning how to enhance my skills in art and I am eager to bring my artwork to life. I have been drawing ever since I was 4 years old. All the years of practice and influence from a family member, who also enjoyed drawing, had led me down the path to wanting to pursue Animation with a desire to bring life to my artwork. I now attend Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois as a Freshman and I am majoring in Animation with a minor in Studio Art. During my time here at Bradley, I have been able to interact with many individuals, through the classes with small sizes, and through the job of being an Assistant Resident Advisor. I was able to animate drawings for the first time during my first semester and utilize more aspects from Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. In the future, I hope to create more animations and learn to work in groups in order to get more works of art complete.
