My mission has always been to make the world if nothing else, a little more aesthetically pleasing. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember, and according to duCret: School of Art, I am a certified graphic designer! I have over three years of professional experience in graphic design and over a year of professional web development experience. I have also always loved film and animation and I have taught myself how to cut videos and animate motion graphics. I also like to think I am a pretty talented fine artist and you can check out my fine art at  fineart.steveycip.com. I guess you can call me a jack-of-all trades when it comes to art and design.
