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 3/7/14

1st and 2nd Period Graphic Design

1st and 2nd Period Graphic Design have been working on a job for a real-life client, our school librarian Ms. Brock!  Students are working in teams to create promotional items for the Pacific Northwest Library Association's annual readers' choice awards. Students are making posters, brochures or bookmarks featuring the nominees.  This week, the teams mostly focused on pre-work: researching, sketching and brainstorming.

4th and 6th Period Graphic Design

4th and 6th Period Graphic Design students have been working on completing their Barry McGee-inspired artworks.  On one side of the paper, students created a geometric pattern using analogous colors.  On the other side, they created a very graphical portrait, using a complementary color scheme.

5th Period Animation Lab

Students worked hard to complete their rotocoping project.  Almost all students reached their goal of 100 completed frames.

I agree, these designs are beautiful. However, they are more infographics than effective dashboards in terms of the amount and depth of insight they communicate. Accepting that, the design, colours and graphics are a visual delight.
