Graphic artist | Creator of worlds | Space wizard
So you want to know more about this eccentric, futuristic artist? Read on.
My name is Evan and I go by the handle 'WallHaxx', I'm in my early 30s, and I'm from the PNW but I'm in Florida for now.
I have always been an artist. The beauty of life has always inspired me. I had the fortune of having two creative and artistic parents, who imparted those talents on myself. When I was young I wanted to be a chef. In high school, I fell in love with film-making. And as I entered adulthood I found my true calling in the visual arts. (I still love cooking and film, but they are not accessible career options) I have loved to draw and paint since I was young, but my skills in those areas are fairly average. In 2008 I began teaching myself to use Photoshop.
Through tutorials and trial and error I honed my skills and discovered that the visions in my mind could never be expressed through traditional art with as much realism as it could with digital art software. I fell in love with creating space art. The realities I created in my mind had found a way into the real world.
It didn't take long for me to translate my skills into the realm of graphic design, giving me a career to pursue. I continued to learn new skills as I volunteered my time to friends, relatives, and non-profit ventures. Building my experience and portfolio all the while. I am now fully capable in Adobe Illustrator as well as Photoshop, with nearly a decade of design experience.
Along the way I have picked up other useful creative skills, albeit less advanced than my design ability. I have basic video editing knowledge, I have done digital music and sound production and DJ mixing, and I have begun doing social media marketing and content publishing. Alternative news media is the latest creative outlet to capture my passion. Along with creating and maintaining social media profiles for clients, I have also started to build up my own profiles into an alternative media brand with my design and other services folded in. I'm also doing Twitch streams of my design work, as well as gaming and independent news coverage and commentary. My goal is to build a robust media company with a positive mission.
Ever since I was a child, I always had this nagging sense that our world was wrong in many ways. The greed, the suffering, the bureaucracy, none of it made sense to me. I've always had this vision of what the world could be. A beautiful gleaming sci-fi future, where we are one with nature AND our technology. Where everyone cares for everyone else and people have complete freedom to pursue their dreams and full expression. Where our collective intelligence and technology benefits ALL of humanity, and the earth, not just a fortunate few, allowing our society to ascend into the most unfathomable reaches of the future.
It is my mission in life to help make that future a reality through my art and creativity. I hope you can be a part of it.
