The year 2002 was a palindrome (or in layman's term 'phase', the first since 1991, which by coincidence & our calendar, was also a common year that started on a Tuesday. 2002 was designated as: International Year of Ecotourism and Mountains.
Yet for me, around the end of the year, getting more confident on my skills and field for career, proved to be more fruitful.
Combining my sketching skills with graphic design & computers, was not only fun, yet had a greater cause. To make the world a better place. Even though there are many other professions that do the same or even more for the same cause, I've been confident and positive about mixing all the skills.
Seeing the results of how I can use my traditional skills to gain true hands on experience over graphic design, I was able to prepare myself for what's coming ahead. A Fusion Era.
