About J.Michael Piper...
Who I Am, What I Am, Where I Am, When I Am & Why I Am
I might not be someone's first choice, but I am a good choice. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not, because I'm good at being me. I might not be proud of some of the things I've done in the past, but no one's life ended because of me. I may not be perfect, but I don't need to be, because there is no such person. I may not be rich, or full of jet planes, toys or playthings, or famous, or always know how to make any situation perfect so as to make everyone so very completely satisfied or content...But who I am, I'm happy with! What I do is just fine with me 'AND' I continue to grow and learn and to be someone who is richer in ways that all the riches in the world cannot buy. I may not have the best of everything, but what I do have, I make the best of that! Take me as I am or watch me as I walk away. I am proud of who I have become and what I've accomplished that's made me what I'm proud to be...and I would never expect anything different from anyone else!
Well, I will attempt to write as much about me as I can think of in written form...not to good on talking about myself, but will make a go of it....My name is John Michael Piper. I was born in Los Angeles California. I am 5'11", 190lbs., I have long brown hair, and I have been told that I am calming and a kind soul, a sort of good/bad boy but a person with a good heart. I've never been married and I have no children. I am influenced a lot by my own works of art. I am influenced by a lot of other things I see or what I experience or feel or have been exposed to. When I am in the perfect mood and I have had an image burning in my eyes and heart, I have to get it out of me. So I picture my design programs and what they do and I use them in exact proportion to how I see my image in my minds eye and I proceed to accomplish exactly what I see in me. I learned a lot from my design school, and got my M.B.A. but what I do and where it comes from is part of my life as a whole. I had a dream at one time to become a successful drummer in a worldly successful band and came very close to accomplishing just that, but fell short of the fame aspect...But hey we can't always get to that golden ring. I happen to be a very talented person whose ability stretches out beyond what has already satisfied me. Anything after this is just a very big and great bonus. My inspirations and influences are wide and seemingly beyond reason and grasp.
*A Professor From School Wrote This About Me-
The palette of Johns vision is an extension of his experience. A reflection and a deflection. A lifetime he has spent thinking outside of the crayon box and coloring book. He is a Visionary. Trends Follow Him. He Is Not On The Edge...He Is The Edge. By Definition, He Defies Repetition And Imitation. Re-Inventing Himself With Every Work He Finishes And Every Season That Goes By. Just As Life Is...He Is A Life Force...He Is An Event. He Will Be Here For A Long Time After He Is Gone.
. I am a retired professional drummer and now I currently am the owner of a website design company called AnimateMotions.Com. I currently just put my newly redesigned website online and the website is at: http://www.animatemotions.com/
I've been creating original art and digital art for the last 25+ years. From my ortho-chrome oils on canvas to my gigantic watercolor pastels on paper to the ingenious creation of computer generated digital rendering of graphic design and animation on the computer. My website has been online for about eight (8) years. My CG (computer-generated) artworks have been downloaded by more than a million people from more than 165 countries world-wide. ArtimationsDesignComp.Com was awarded 'Website of the Month' from "TheAmericanAssociationOfWebmasters.Com, as well as received two 'Bronze' awards from "TheWorldWideWebAwards.Com" and I was completely thrilled with that! My web designs have received many positive comments from a great many people, and they've stated that they were impressed and amazed when they visited my website. I have loved every minute that I can create. I have a personal quote 'The Vision Of My Work Is To Create Something From Nothing, Because That Means Everything To Me". I will create until the day I die. There is no such thing as retirement for the caliber of energy and passion I poses. I love life and everything in it and about it!
And that's about all I will tell for now! Thanks for visiting and taking the time to find out who I am!
