As for Dawnshine, I’m very glad that I reached out to Professor Matthew Stoehr, chair of the Art New Media Department of the second largest college in Sacramento–American River College. He’s been sending me his students. I’ve been really impressed with the quality of work they’re doing. I actually went to ARC myself starting in the 1990s back when I was determined to major in every single subject ever created before I finally settled transferring to CSUS in 2005 to get my degree in Psychology and graduated 4 years later with my Anthropology BA(and now I’m back at ARC getting a Business AA degree). But in all that time, I don’t think I’ve ever met an instructor that was as passionate about improving the skills of his students as Matt is. He’s a hard teacher though from what I’ve heard. He expects a lot from his students.
In addition to sending his current and former students our way to work on the Dawnshine project, he’s been helping out with some behind the scenes stuff. There are a lot of technical art issues we’ve needed some help with. Just knowing that I can turn to Matt for help on those issues is a relief. Plus having an artist of Matt’s caliber associated with this project really gives us some credibility. It’s really tough saying to people, “Hey, I’m just some random guy with a dream and no money. Please take me seriously.” People like that are a dime a dozen. And although I know Dawnshine is a stand out project, it’s hard overtly showing that to others.
