Doing Art Right; VIDEO 19 (2012 Teleconference)

Meet Jeremy Steffen as he tells us about Doing Art Right!

Jeremy Steffen is originally from Keokuk, Iowa, and now resides on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.

Jeremy found an affinity for stark images and bold colors at an early age. This later led to his love of all kinds of art, ranging from classic masters to comic book illustration and video game design. He attended the Art Institute of Seattle majoring in Animation, where he graduated with honors. Jeremy has spent several years in the graphic design field, using both traditional and new techniques to create his works. He likes sharing his knowledge of pop culture, and is a veritable fountain of video game information. He is proud that he has produced artwork internationally.

Jeremy enjoys games of all kinds, music, swimming, and spending time with his wife, Lucinda, and their daughter, Kendra. The Steffen family is expecting a new baby any day now.

 

In "Doing Art Right," Jeremy explains how important self expression is in creating art.

In addition to his vast experience, Jeremy has worked with Do Life Right, Inc. on several projects:

  • One of the nine illustrators in Cody Greene and the Rainbow Mystery (April 2011) [He created the Naranja Sunburst collage.]

Our fifth title: CODY GREENE AND THE RAINBOW MYSTERY

by Linda Fields

When a painting is stolen from nine year old Cody Greene’s family’s art gallery, he does what any artist does best: he sketches the clues. Through cooking with his friend, visiting the midwife with his mom, hiking with his dad, and helping to prepare for an upcoming art and craft festival, Cody’s homeschooling takes a new turn as he unravels the Case of the Rainbow Mystery.

Introducing new author, Linda Fields, to the homeschooling fiction "field" with her new release: Cody Greene and the Rainbow Mystery, a fabulous children's chapter book.

Linda Fields is a first time published author with a million stories in her head. She’s been writing for years, yet especially loves books for children and teens. She came up with the idea for the character of Cody after seeing that most children’s books didn’t have people from a variety of ethnicities. On a trip with her family, she was inspired with the idea of a Rainbow Mystery and instantly knew that Cody had to be the one to solve it. Linda lives a quiet life in the southwest with her family and pets. She loves reading, writing, hiking, and watching movies. Check out www.AuthorFields.com to learn more about Linda.

Illustrated by ten different authors, this book is highly unique. Each illustrator fulfilled a unique role in this book, since it was set in a northern New Mexico art gallery.
