Clay Brooks is an Illustrator, Painter, and Game Artist working in Denver. His illustration and fine art works are created digitally using methods and principles established by old masters. Clay’s constant study and experimentation in traditional media, from graphite to oil paint, informs his painting process as a digital artist. His work generally falls into the category of imaginative realism with a slight lean toward science fiction and fantasy. Clay graduated from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design.
David Fraile is an electronic technician and multimedia artist living in Denver, Colorado. His work reflects on the complexity of our relationships with analog and digital technologies, using modified circuits and code to create generative media environments.
Justin Ankenbauer received a BFA in painting from Western Kentucky University. He creates work to convey how we connect through process and to reinforce the importance of caring for and exploring the unknown through play.
About the Wayfinding Series
The Wayfinding Series connects students to local creative professionals. With equal parts inspiration and honesty, speakers will share their path towards a successful creative life and all of the twists and turns involved in that journey. Addressing career-focused issues such as industry trends, relevant skills, making connections, and professional fulfillment, speakers will highlight that there is no one way to find and live a successful, creative career. Speakers will represent a variety of creative employment opportunities, connecting to multiple academic departments and revealing that professional creatives are found in diverse and sometimes surprising fields.
