Name: Anna Warkentin
Year you’ll be graduating: Class of 2022
Major: Graphic Design
Minor(s): Multimedia Communication
I am majoring in Art because I’ve always loved art and when quarantine started my boyfriend pointed out that I invested all my time and energy into art, rather than my previous major. I gave it a lot of thought and realized he was right, art was where all my passion and energy was invested. Until then I hadn’t considered myself good enough to major in art but I swallowed that insecurity and changed my major. I knew right away it was the correct choice.
The kinds of things that inspire me are video games, music, and fellow artists.
My favorite class so far was Graphic Design for Communication Arts with Chris Medley!
When I’m not in class I’m usually working on commissions or free designs or art for friends, playing League of Legends (poorly), or watching esports or anime.
The coolest thing I’ve done so far was originally meant to be a warmup sketch but it turned into a fully finished, stylized piece that I really like.
When I graduate I’d love to be a designer for an esports organization I admire like FNATIC.
I’d recommend the Art program at Marywood because the professors are passionate and engaged.
