Dean Vigyikan grew up around nature and has been exposed to and fascinated by visual beauty since early childhood. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Rochester Institute of Technology in the state of New York. Following a two year religious mission in Europe, he has pursued a successful career both as a fine artist and graphic designer. With nearly two decades of professional experience, his traditional art background has combined with the latest in digital media to produce an exceptionally versatile skill set in styles ranging from classical sculpture to whimsical children's book illustrations. Dean's artistic approach and attitudes continue to be strongly influenced by the sublime beauties of nature and a very personal sense of spirituality. He also draws heavily upon the power of imagination. Throughout his life, he has enjoyed a passion for fantasy art and literature and this influence appears frequently in his work. When he's not creating in his studio, Dean enjoys being outdoors, hiking, biking, cross country skiing - whatever the season seems to invite. He also enjoys attending concerts and visiting museums. It seems that everything he finds most beautiful is given expression somewhere in his art.

Cover Letter Avi H Pinnock D.O.B 18/08/1975 I have been learning and developing my skills as a illustrator for the past 29 years and as a result I have amassed an extensive back log of work that varies in theme concept and size and mediums used. Initially my motivation for getting into illustration were comic books as I found their flare for the dramatics and imagination combined with a storyline to be exciting and alluring which as a youth I was completely drawn to and so I sought to emulate the work of my favorite artists/illustrators such as Jim Lee Ron Lim Barry Windsor Smith and Arthur Adams to name but a few. At seventeen in 1992 I applied for and was accepted for a place at Tottenham Hale Techno Park on a Graphic Design and Communication Course that I successfully completed with the following awards. Industrial studies Communication Observing safe practices Technology of printing materials Computer operations Basic Design Principles Basic graphic communication Basic Graphic Design Drawn illustration Techniques Finished art work production techniques Black and white photography Book and Magazine Layout Advertisement Design Desktop Publishing In 1994 roughly a year later in an attempt to keep my creative goals alive I enrolled my self onto a short course named portfolio preparation a course which focused on hand drawn or painted imagery/graphics a course I completed with satisfaction although there were no rewards/certifications to receive upon completion. By 2000 I had begun a family with the birth of my son which spurned me onto finding employment in the construction and decorating trade as a general laborer and then later when the opportunity arose as a painter/decorator although this was not illustrative or graphical it did however have its creative qualities which I found enjoyable and found rewarding not only in monetary terms but in the satisfaction in seeing a hard some times difficult job well done and most importantly when in regards to client satisfaction. By 2010 I became the primary carerer for my older brother who had suffered a spinal injury leaving him wheel chair bound during this period between 2010 – 2013 I had the occasional opportunity to continue to work as a painter and decorator but found increasingly that my enthusiasm for this line of work was now being superseded by a desire to seek a career within the creative fields as this might provide me with greater flexibility for example working from home. In late 2013 I had successfully enrolled myself onto a course with the London College Of Contemporary Arts to study Interactive Media where along with my fellow students we studied and learnt the following. Web development Animation App building Html (hyper text mark up language) and css (cass Scading style sheets) The history and development of communication and illustration Movie editing Illustrative and graphic techniques Industry standards Industry terminologies By 15/12/2015 I successfully completed all of my assignments along with their accompanying documentation I now await to receive my HND (higher national diploma) certificate. To date I seek to capitalize on the skills I have developed and the knowledge I have recently gained on the creative industry by building a professional work based creative experience.
