Hello! My name is Karl Orozco and I hail from small, suburban New Milford, NJ. I am currently a second year Studio Art major with an interest in screen-printing, graphic design, web design, illustration, animation- everything that doesn't involve painting. Prior to Oberlin, I was very unsure as to what I wanted to study. Oberlin's art department certainly helped me realize my strengths and challenge me to constantly improve. To see some of my work, visit www.karlorozco.com.
In addition to being engrossed in all things artsy, I am the chair of Oberlin's Filipino American Student Association. Asian American identity, particularly amongst Filipino Americans, is something that I take great interest in and want to expand upon through my involvement on campus, artwork, and blogging.
One of my biggest passions is print-making, a relatively new hobby of mine. I spend an awful lot of time designing and printing many of the posters around Oberlin's campus advertising events, bands, speakers, and concerts. Through my posters and related prints, I hope to illustrate (quite literally) the breadth and depth of Oberlin's extracurricular activities. I am also very big on racquet sports- tennis, badminton, ping-pong, squash, what have you- and am surprisingly a huge NBA fan. Go Nets!
Above all else, I adore Oberlin and want to share this admiration.
