Stoddard, Professor of Art 870-230-5020 stoddad@hsu.edu 1100 Henderson Street, Henderson State University, Box 7792, Arkadelphia, AR 71999 Artist Statement Whether one considers himself to be an exceptional illustrator, a skilled photographer, or a highly advanced computer whiz, a complete understanding of design and composition is fundamental for success. No matter how detailed or meaningful a piece of work is, poor choices in design and composition can render it incomprehensible and ultimately unappealing to the viewer. As an artist, I approach each task in a similar matter. Whether I am designing a logo or creating a piece to be hung in a gallery, I follow a method that insures my work is not only meaningful but is also aesthetically pleasing and comprehensible. The first step I take to creating a successful design is research. When presented with a particular subject or idea, I search for any information I can find that will help me gain a better understanding of what I am doing. After researching, I determine what information is the most important and how to conceptualize it. I normally do this with a series of sketches. When sketching, I take notes on the different visual and emotional connections I can make with the information I obtained. I also gain a general idea of how the finished product will appear. Once I have made a final decision, I determine what would be the most efficient and professional way to render the design. Sometimes a well-textured, handmade look is preferred, while at other times a sleek, clean design is necessary. I typically use a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for most of my designs. The vector capabilities of Illustrator are essential when producing brand logos. Adobe Photoshop is normally my weapon of choice when creating highly textured and detailed printed and web designs. In producing a design, I do not only consider my personal feelings toward it, but how the public will view it. I always consider whether an idea is too simple or too complex. It is pertinent for one to know whether an idea is universal or stereotypical. If a design looks like an imitation of another popular, overly circulated design, it will become lost amongst the other imitators. If it is so bizarre that no one understands it, all the work put into it was a waste of time and money. A successful artist is rarely one that makes sporadic, unconscious decisions. Having a consistent method for designing not only makes the process fast and efficient, but also allows the designer to sharpen his skills and perfect his craft. That is always my goal as a designer. With every task I become more efficient, experienced and creative.
