About MeJustin Joseph Hilare Cardinal Schubert
I grew up constantly looking at art as my Mother Joane Cardinal-Schubert was attending the University of Calgary as a student in fine art and then later worked as a curator at the Nickel Arts Museum before finally maintaining a studio full-time. I have been her assistant now for over 22 years.
I have been interested in Animation, 3-D modeling and design of computer Sprites (pixels to create pattern of light) since childhood, my first experience being with computer animation on an Apple I I e in Junior High. After this I went on to produce a 2 minute clay-mation-based animation short of Stop- motion
(fixed movie camera) piece which we edited and showed to family and friends. A few years later for Industrial Arts Classes I used an early version of Auto-Cad and a graphic tablet on an Apple I le to design a CO-2 powered car which I later raced and which won several heats (races).
I was very serious about all of these productions having been influenced at an early age by being shown how to use a Main Frame Computer and architectural drafting programs by my uncle, Douglas Cardinal at his Architectural firm offices. I was frustrated, however, using a Commodore 128, as it was very basic labour intensive on that computer but, I had to learn basic computer language, which l think was a plus. During Junior and Senior High School I studied Drama/Theatre, as well as Art. After finishing my Senior Matriculation in High School at the Plains Indian Cultural Survival School.
I decided to go to the Alberta College of Art where I studied sculpture, painting, jewellery, and graphic arts. I used the computer a lot to do my basic design. I specifically directed my education to obtain the proper background and information to answer the questions I had regarding my own expression by this time I had a computer of my own. Attending the En'owkin Center in Penticton
(The Native Art and Writing School) I had access to computers and studied writing, sculpture, painting and drawing.
I now have a Mutant PC (for Gaming) Mac Book Pro for Posting Blogging and generally being an ass and a Desktop PC that I use for drawing, writing, and designing. I have produced my own web page and have designed others as well.
Presently I enjoy the ever-changing technologies of the mac using Adobe Photo-Shop and combining this technology with my writing and art background.
