Hey! My name is Benjamin Salkind, or just Benj, and you will not find another college student who loves making digital art and graphic designs as much as I do. I grew up in Bellevue, Washington, and moved down to Los Angeles to attend Occidental College and further pursue my creative ambitions. I have loved Photoshop since I was around 12 years old, and since then I have dedicated hundreds of hours of my life to learning its ins and outs, eventually expanding to Illustrator and InDesign.
My high school had a terrible Digital Arts program that was just mashed into the Photography class, so I took it upon myself to learn how it was done properly. Along the way, I joined my high school's newspaper as their Graphic Artist and was later promoted to being the Features Section Editor, where I could combine my eye for graphic design with my artistic ability. I graduated high school with two perfect scores on my AP Photography/AP Digital Art portfolios, one of my illustrations hanging in the office of the Washington State School District Superintendent's office, and another illustration on display in one of the exhibits at the Bellevue Arts Museum.
Currently, I'm attending Occidental College as a full-time student who's leaning towards majoring in Media Arts. I'm the A&E and Sports Layout Editor for the Occidental Weekly. In my free time I have made many illustrations, and so now I look to combine this passion with dedication and career.
