Russell Valois

I received my degree from The Art Institute of Philadelphia, and currently work full time as a freelancer. My degree is in Computer Animation, and my main focuses right now are Illustration and Photoshop work. With the occasional 3D job, I am very experienced with vector art, and all kinds of print and internet ready graphics.

Experience

Owner

Jan 2008 - Jan 2011 (3 years)

In this time I ran my own silk screen business. I had a four color press and was able to gain valuable experience with Adobe Illustrator and vector art. In the time since, I have focused mostly on the computer aspect. learning as much as I can about the working of programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. It was, at times, a very stressful and rewarding experience for me.
