Welcome friends, family, fellow students and artists.

My name is Jeff Hodges. I live in Houston, Texas. I have an Associates Degree in Digital Communication from Houston Community College and have been working as a graphic designer for the last year. I also have a Bachelors degree in Business Administration from Kent State University. On this site, you will see many of the projects that I completed over a two year period at HCC and over a year as a graphic designer. For years I worked as an application programmer, mostly in the oil, gas, and utilities industries. In 2013, I quit working to return to college. My major at HCC is a hybrid of graphic design and web publishing. This site was originally created to fulfill a course requirement. I have maintained the site and added many of the projects completed during my employment. I have, through the process, developed a passion for creating art. I hope you enjoy these pages and I encourage you to embark upon your own creative journey. I have discovered an indescribable source of satisfaction from this work.
