About Mr. McGehee

I grew up in the small town of Durant, Oklahoma and went to college at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX.  While at UNT, I received two bachelor's degrees: one in Radio, TV & Film Studies and one in History.  After moving to Bellingham in 2006, I attended Western Washington University in order to get my teaching certification.  I taught History and technology classes at high schools in Bellingham from spring 2010 to June 2012.  In the fall of 2012, I was happy to find what I consider to be a dream job here at MMS teaching digital art classes.  I enjoy the thrill of teaching classes that always change with the latest techniques and technology.

Aside from education, I have over 10 years of experience in graphic design, photography and the digital printing industry.  Living in Mount Vernon with my family, I enjoy cooking; looking for new music to listen to; listening to news podcasts and reading technology and design blogs.

Rundown: Week Ending 2/7/14

1st and 2nd Period Graphic Design

As part of our ongoing series on rules for good graphic design, 1st and 2nd periods discussed Rule 4: Alignment and Spacing.  To apply their understanding of the concepts of alignment and using grids in design, students were asked to fix the layout of the Adventure Time coloring book cover below.

4th and 6th Period Graphic Design

 As a non-electronic introduction to using words and images to communication (i.e., the definition of Graphic Design), students did the first steps of an assignment where they drew a half self-portrait and accompanied it with 3D lettering.  Students' pencil drawings were replaced with thick marker.

5th Period Animation Lab

Students continue their work on their personal rotoscoping sequence.  Students should have approximately 40 frames complete by now to be considered on schedule.  A sample of one student's progress is below.
