My name is Joshua D Altobelli, and for the month of August my artwork will be on display here at Paxton Richards Memorial Library. I currently live in Holden, but I am very familiar with Paxton.
I was born with autism, a major obstacle I have had to overcome my entire life. Although I am high functioning, it has been difficult for me at times to communicate with others. Illustrating and other forms of artmaking have been my passion as it allows me to express myself to others.
I graduated from the University of Dartmouth Massachusetts with a degree in Digital Media. While attending that University, I took part in the 20 Cent Fiction theater group, took part in Gaming Society and I ran the Anime Club for a year. There were also various work study jobs I took part in, including chalk drawing for the Theater Club, printing for the Campus Printing and working as a cameraman for the local television station. The television job assisted me with my internship at Worcester’s “WCCA” and my volunteer work at Holden’s “HCTV”.
I have been creating a web comic series called “Zheph Skyre” at www.zhephskyre.com. It has lead me to sell postcards and other prints at various conventions such as Boston Comic Con, Rhode Island Comic Con, Nauticon, Granite State Comic Con and Anime Boston.
I have displayed artwork art other libraries such as the Holden Gale Free Library and the Sudbury Goodnow Library. I have also shown my artwork at ArtsWorcester and at the Genesis Club.
