    Sucks to head about Shock...

    But back to the original question, are you interested in visual layouts or the backend logic of web applications? I am a Software Engineer, and I develop Java logic for web applications (J2EE). It is a competitive job field but I love the work!

    Any art school in your area should have a program for it. I'm going to an art College for either Movie Production/Audio Production/or Design. Not completely sure yet tho.

    Re: Graphic/Web Designers!!

    Hey Vikez4Lyfe. I'm a professional graphic designer and have been in the biz for over 7 years. I have a BFA in fine arts from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. Its an excellent school that I'd recommend. Its also a private school and therefore expensive but you can obtain scholarships and/or grants to help out. You can still explore that option no matter what school you choose. The industry is highly competitive however you seperate yourself by talent. There are a lot of hacks out there who think just because they can use a desktop publishing program that they are suddenly designers. They most certainly are not! It means they know how to use a program. The problem this creates is market saturation and that can slow the job search because companies have to wade through the qualified candidates. That said, I say if you have a passion for it and would like to pursue it as a career, go for it. Its extremely rewarding and I'm glad I chose to do so. Its a big decision. Hope this helps and good luck.

    School links to explore:
