My name is Thomas Hajny and welcome to my Portfolio!
I’ve lived in southern Illinois for a vast majority of my life and would not have considered myself a creator until I came to Greenville College. I originally wanted to a be a cartoon designer / animator because I really enjoyed watching anime as a kid. I liked it so much that I would draw out some of my favorite scenes and even do “what-if” creations. It mostly consisted of stick figures. Once I got to high school, I got into music and started a band with some of my friends. It was mostly just an excuse to jam out together and hang out, but I wanted to go to school for music because of it. However, music just didn’t feel right, and that is when I got into Digital Media.
You will notice I have the quote “Do things with passion, or not at all” at the very top of my site. This is one of those quotes that I found that really hit me and has fueled my drive for what I do. I have never felt as passionate about anything in my life until about this summer. I ran across this quote in a photography magazine I was looking through for class and something in my head just clicked. This quote has become my personal motto for everything. If I’m going to do something, I am all in, otherwise I’m just wasting my time.
