Jeffrey Smith wears many different hats. For some, he is Jeff A. Smith the graphic and web designer behind Vita Opus! For others, he is Jeffrey Smith an aspiring actor and voice artist. And then for the rest, he is Jeff Smith.
The liveArt! Collection is a brand new concept from Vita Opus! But it's an old idea. liveArt! has been around since, well, before Vita Opus! did freelance design. Before now, the original pieces were simply considered graphic art and usually got mixed in with the graphic design projects Vita Opus! would complete. This was often very confusing for potential clients and disturbed some people. (No Joke!) So, the solution was to introduce a completely independent gallery that would feature this type of original artwork. Just for nostalgia, let's take a look at the beginnings of what would soon become (with the first liveArt! piece "Favorite Things") the liveArt! Collection.
