Read my story
My name is Alex Berkowitz. I am a second-year student at RIT studying 3D Digital Design. I love 3D graphics, graphic design, web design, and photography. Digital art is my passion and I hope to continue creating interesting designs for the rest of my life.
My first forray into the world of digital art was grapic design. As a kid I loved to create icons, logos, posters, themes, and composite images using GIMP. I learned what goes into an appealing design simply by devoting my time to trying new things. Even when I upgraded to Photoshop and Illustrator my curiosity and passion never subsided. I had found my calling in digital art and I was not prepared to let it go.
Sophomore year of high school was my first real experience with 3d graphics. While I had already dedicated hours of my time to creating objects and scenes in Google SketchUp, using 3ds Max changed the game for me. Once I realized the power and potential of 3d art I fell in love with it. It was not long before I decided that I wanted to pursue it as a career.
But I am still not ready to give up on other forms of digital art. In fact, since then I have expanded my list of graphics-related skills, from web design to video editing to scripting. I love creating digital art of all media and I hope that wherever life takes me I will be able to continue to push my bounds as an artist.
