This past week I enjoyed the works of Michelle Thompkins at the CSULB art galleries. I was very impressed to hear that Michelle is attending het 3rd year towards her MFA. On top of her studies, Michelle works for Dreamworks as a productions assistant. She wants to work towards a career in Character design.
In her artwork, Michelle intends to capture related human emotions in her illustration. Her piece with overflowing traffic reminded me of the misery that heavy traffic has to offer. We had a discussion about that specific piece. I told her that I felt bad about the driver approaching the heavy traffic because he sees the non-overcomable doom that he getting ready to face.
