My name is Emmanuel C. Flint and...
One of my favorite forms of art is literature because it seems that all forms of communication can be derived from the written word; it possesses the power to inform, transform, enlighten and support the creation of various works, which can convey meaning in our lives. One can construct and deconstruct entire worlds with literature – not to mention lightening up the darkness with wonderfully arrayed words, as they would appear in ink, having been well-received on paper. In recent years I have labored much to gain some mastery thereof; thus, I have developed my own unique form of literary expression that has been baptized by my life-experiences, over the years. Apart from writing, I have been creating visual art since the age of ten. Many years ago while still in adolescence, I decided to pursue a "creative professional" career. During my high school years I sampled various kinds of art such as life drawing, painting, sculpture and foreign animation. By the time I graduated from college I had acquired many self-taught skills - most of all an intermediate knowledge of human anatomy that would prove most useful in years to come.
In May of 2001, I graduated from Massachusetts College of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Illustration. Thenceforth, I took up digital painting and worked as a freelancer for a few years, creating concepts and covers for small graphic novel-based productions. While trying to expand my horizons as a professional, I became interested in 3D graphics. At the time the visual graphics industry was expanding rapidly in both the video game and motion picture arenas. Computer generated art seemed like a limitless world that was full of grand possibilities.
In time, I decided to enroll in Digital Media Arts College, where I earned a Masters degree in special effects and 3D animation. When I graduated from the program I was awarded the "Best of Show Award," for my graduate thesis demo reel production in May of 2006. Since then I have been working as a freelancer in 3D graphics. Alongside my freelancing endeavors I spend time developing literary works, with the hope that each will serve as a source of inspiration when I publish them. Ultimately, I aspire to take part in screenplay writing and production, hopefully after I gain some tenure as a novel writer, in the years to come. Although the majority of my work is Christian-based, it has the tendency to appeal to all types of audiences.
I currently work and reside in Boston, Massachusetts (USA) where I operative under the business name of Digitalflint.com.
