About This Class

Welcome to the first day of the rest of your digital art career. In this course I will teach you the most practical and vital skill as a Digital artist, batch image manipulation. We will learn how to set up a folder that automatically resizes our images multiple times (and changes PNG to JPEG) just by putting the images into this folder. No more saving out multiple copies of images for different uses. No more worrying about images being too large to send, and having to screenshot them or convert them online.

    I can’t tell you how much this course would have help me when I was getting into selling my art online. Once you take this course, you will not know how you lived without it. These skills are crucial when selling art online, or just making digital art. You can’t get by using online image converters, saving out multiple copies, or changing images one by one, it just takes too much time when you are a successful digital artist. You need that time to be awesome and make awesome things. Here is your future time back. You are welcome.

    The best part about all this? You don't need to buy any special software. If you have a Mac, you are already ready to go. Prepare to say “Wow that is sweeeet” a lot. What are you doing still reading this?? Start the course!!!

My Qualifications and Works

Business Qualifications

I have always been fascinated with business and marketing, and made this my academic pursuit. While attending Frostburg State University for business with a concentration in marketing, I started a successful t-shirt design business. After graduating FSU with high honors in 2014, I started an LLC for my current web project, the Current X Change. I am particularly interested in branding and online marketing, and hope to share my knowledge with hungry entrepreneurs worldwide.

Design Career

I am an active graphic designer with a variety of skills and disciplines. Besides designing vector art for my t-shirt designs, I do photomanipulations in photoshop, and create fractal art using algorithmic software. I sell designs on t-shirts, stickers, canvas, leggings, and a variety of other products. Over the past two years I have sold over 5,000 products made with my designs, without spending a dime on advertising.

Web Work

As a high school sophmore, I developed a social network called Myhs[.]us (now retired). I learned PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, and CSS from books, and became quickly obsessed with the web. As a senior in high school, I developed Blurba[.]com (also retired), a site that used AJAX, allowing all interactions to take place in real time without refreshing the browser. Currently, I run a handful of sites related to my art, and am working on a platform called the Current X Change that will allow users to share and sell their digital art. While I don't teach any courses on web development, my experience in web development gives me a more in-depth understanding of online marketing.
