“Art allows people to express themselves in unique ways, and allows people to connect with each other over similar likings.”

DeMarcus Jackson, 9th Grade Student

The name’s DeMarcus. I’m a 9th grader and I prefer to go by D. I am a proud genderfluid pansexual and I’m into anime, video games, and fitness. I see myself as a person anyone can come to whether they have a problem or just want a friend regardless of how close we are. If you ever want help with any problems whether it be personal or mental or whatever just start venting and I’ll help as best as I can.

Art allows people to express themselves in unique ways, and allows people to connect with each other over similar likings.
I enjoy creating art of my own style on my own time.

Digital/Pen and paper are my favorite ways to create. I feel that I have more control and freedom with digital and more structure and serenity/connection with paper and pencil.
I plan to take more art classes and eventually go into graphic design and if not then I’ll settle for IT for a large enough company.
Art is subjective and people tend to do better when they’re allowed to enjoy what they’re working on and pour themselves into it.
My art reflects my interests and that I tend to work better when it’s something that I’m passionate about or that I enjoy doing.  Through creating, I hope to unleash my true potential.
