About Andrew Teague
I am a 2022 Bradley University graduate. I majored in Interactive Media with a concentration in UI/UX, and I also do digital art as a hobby. I have done a small handful of art collaboration projects in the past, and I have also worked on user interface related projects for my university. Not only did I help OSF Hospital with prototyping interface for their hospital kiosks, but I was also the UX Lead for the FUSE project Mismatched Mayhem, a 1v1 arcade game where players would make monsters from random parts to fight in AI controlled combat. I am proficient in software such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, XD and Premiere Pro, as well as Aseprite and Clip Studio Paint.
I initially came to Bradley University to major in Game Design, but I ended up changing majors after three semesters, realizing that game design was simply not for me. I ended up choosing to do UI/UX related courses because of my experience in an Interactive Design course during my second semester of freshman year. I remembered how I enjoyed working on the assignments for that course, and I figured it might translate to a career in that field.
I have always been a fan of the arts. I, like others during my formative years, made plenty of drawings using crayons and coloring pencils, but it wasn’t until April of 2020 that I began digital art as a full on hobby. Around that time, I joined the GO!GO! Collabs Discord server, a place that not only centered discussion around Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, but also on its users’ art skills. I initially participated in the server strictly to hang out, as I knew all of the admins and moderators there from another server. However, I ended up joining a couple collaboration projects on a whim and realized how much I genuinely enjoyed drawing, as well as how good I was. Because of that, I have begun to do more projects on my own, and have developed my art style greatly since then.
I have always been fascinated with the idea of super heroes saving the day with cool powers. I’m also heavily interested in robots and science fiction, as well as the creativity that comes from that genre.
