My name is Jordyn Hajek, and I am a freshman at Bradley University. I am currently majoring in Game Design, as well as minoring in Studio Art. My dream career is to one day be able to create character concept art and to detail the stories for video games. As a hobby, I love to create my own characters and stories, and am even working on a big project involving both of these concepts.
In my free time, I love both drawing and gaming. I work in both traditional and digital media, as well as occasionally combining the two, and while I am still learning, I consider myself to be fairly decent at what I do and continually strive to hone my artistic skills.
I have been interested and following my dream career of becoming a concept artist and story writer for a few years now, and after much thought and some trial and error, I do not believe that this is just a phase or a temporary decision that I will abandon partway down the road. Creating characters and stories is my passion. Creating art is my passion. I will do what it takes in order to accomplish my goals later in my life.
