TAGOL MEET THE ARTIST
MEET RICH GREEN...
"I have been creative for just about as long as I can remember.
As a kid my Mom was always doing so some of art and craft project and often times would involve me in the process. As I grew older I took on my own artistic interest in art and it became clear that drawing was something that came naturally to me.
Throughout high school I was in band so that took up my credit for art and I was enrolled in many honors and advanced placement classes so there was no time left for artistic endeavors. I would still be doing art projects and craft projects in the evenings and on weekends at home. But it was not until college that I signed up for design, drawing and other classes and found myself acing them as I had done other subjects. I eventually transferred to Columbia College Chicago to study film/video/computer graphics/animation. That led to an internship at Disney which was a dream come true.
Upon returning back from that internship I landed a job with a software company who was on the cutting edge of computer video editing and I worked there for over 17 years. My role changed over time and I was no longer doing anything creative at work or really in my personal life. And it certainly impacted me.
But now I invested in my Wacom tablet and the Adobe Creative Suite of products as well as stocked my studio space (in my basement) with all kinds of paints/colored pencils/drawing supplies and I can feel the life and energy coming back at full force. And I find that I am actually spending more hours a day “working” than I have in my entire life simply because this does not feel like work to me. It is simply what I am meant to do." - RG
