East, west, north & south: All roads led to......well...here
Hi, I'm Sean. I'm an artist, photographer and designer living in Columbus, Ohio. I've been lurking and listening for a while now, and thought I should hop on board.
BIO: (the abridged version)
Since my first trip to WDW in the early 80's I've been utterly fascinated. I used to build Disney-themed walk-through "mini attractions" in my grandmother's basement. The one I remember most was my version of the Cave of Wonders, from Aladdin. I recreated the cave's head in a makeshift dark ride type of environment (black lights and fluorescent paint included), which you could walk through. Once inside you saw hundreds of these shiny plastic gold coins I found at some craft shop where I created three-dimensional scenes from the movie, which were theatrically lit using the minimal resources that I had.
For several years I worked very hard at honing my art skills because I was determined to become a Disney Imagineer. In 1995 I submitted my portfolio to a highly ranked art school with a five-year curriculum. I was nervous and intimidated, but was accepted and even graduated.
Sometimes life gets in the way of our dreams, but I'd still like to think that it's possible to become what I really want when I grow up.
Here's to possibilities. :mrbobby:
