Today in class, Todd McDowell shared his journey as an illustrator and designer after life at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. I always enjoyed hearing passionate people talk about how they fell into different areas of work, especially when it does not pertain to what they had intended to do. I was also very interested in hearing about his process when it comes to creating an article from start to finish. The research is intensive and passion about the topic shows through the writing. This is what I want to emulate with my writing. By addressing issues and coming at them from an angle of urgency may propel readers into action.
