From the depths of Long Island rose a bright shining star. From the hamlet of Massapequa, Jeff Fugelsang, artist, friend and warrior came to existence. Even as a lad, Jeffrey had a penchant and love for drawing and animation. Alas, he was only a youngling, and he had many years of class-taking, pie-making and jabberwocky-slaying ahead of him before he could start upon his fated career path.
Time passed, and Jeffrey's journey brought him to the doorstep of The Secret President, who was so impressed by his skills and bravado that he promptly stuffed Jeffrey in a large envelope and mailed him first-class to SUNY College at Oneonta, where after escaping the campus post office he achieved a bachelor's degree in Computer Art and Art with a concentration in Studio Art, along with Art with a Concentration in Art Art. Upon graduation, he embarked on an internship at Overit Media, where he learned the finer arts of motion graphics, comic book coloring, and how to properly get shot at in a music video.
These were the halcyon days, but they were short lived, before what scribes now refer to as The Great Darkening. Jeff went rouge for a short while, and there have been whispers that he was spotted delivering fried chicken to the people, at affordable prices within 30 minutes or your money back. No one knows if the stories are true, but it is said that after he tired of the life of a chicken monger, he spent some time as a web designer for Ordereze.com. Here he learned the great feat of being in the working world, which includes client management, html & CSS, eye to eye communication, hand to hand combat and mouth to mouth resuscitation (a daily necessity). But The Great Darkening was as dark as it sounds, for Jeff was not born to be a servant of the web and thus the universe was thrown into disarray, causing great seismic shifts in the Earth's tectonic plates. As per the orders of the Secret President, Jeff stayed after hours one Friday night and drilled a hole in the floor of his office into the center of the planet to hold the plates together and save the world, without even standard time-and-a-half overtime pay. But when the last of his strength failed him and Death arrived to pick him up, Jeff struck up a friendly conversation and found they shared an interest in Abraham Lincoln action figures. Death gave Jeff a get-out-of-death free card and a thumbs up as they parted ways that fated day, but the universe was still shaken at its fundamentals, for Jeff still had to show up at work on Monday and he had no more sick days left.
But just as the world threatened to tear itself asunder again, Jeff caught wind that his old training ground, Overit, was hiring. He struck whilst the iron was hot and has been working at Overit since August 2013. With his indentured servitude to the Web complete, the Great Darkening had ended, and all was right with the world again. Jeff's training there has led him to develop his skills in motion graphics, animation, illustration, and comic book coloring to near mastery, and he will earn his black belt by the end of this month. But he continually strives to improve, and is always looking for new work. So if you feel the desire to hire Jeff for any project, please use the contact information below, and he would be immensely happy to work with you, and also to save your planet.
