Hi! I’m Evan Loraine, a freshman animation major from St. Louis MO. For the longest time I thought I knew what I wanted to do with my life, but I began to realize how much the media I consumed affected me personally. Even in just the year leading up to my enrollment I was watching shows and playing games that were fundamentally changing the way I saw the world. I decided I wanted to try my best to give that to others, so I returned to the search for colleges and began binge studying the fundamentals of art and animation to catch up. While I’ve made considerable progress I still have a lot to learn. I’ve done a lot of concept art and storyboards, but I have yet to put myself to the test on a full scale project, though I intend to soon. My hope is to, in due time, be capable of using art and animation with enough skill to be able to convey emotion effectively.
