To try to stretch my legs, my portfolio teacher told me to find a funny, contemporary article and illustrate it. I picked Lena Dunham’s article “a Box of Puppies”, which is about how she’s wanted a dog all her life, and when she was an adult, finally got one…and it wasn’t as great as she’d romanticized it to be.
Two of my pieces in the illustration senior show!
a little belated but happy march!! spring is soon! yay!!!
The assignment was to pick an object, create a story for it, and then design a poster as if a museum was going to have an exhibition about it. Only you couldn’t have the object in the image! My object was a hairbrush.
need to make some edits before its posted, but new piece coming soon!!
i hit 450 followers and i just wanna say thanks!! should have some new stuff up soon
A new piece I made for my portfolio class!
doodling aka procrastination
We started a new semester this week (my last one at RISD!! what??) and I felt like I needed to do a personal project to get back into the swing of things.
I’ve been thinking a lot about fairytales lately (as usual) and this doodle grew into something more that I actually quite like. :)
A crppped page from my children’s book, “Jungle Walk.”
I know it’s not exactly seasonal, but maybe that’s why it’s necessary.
Happy February everyone!
The final go at my gender fluidity/intersex assignment. This was a project that really pushed my brain, because I personally identify as cis-straight-female, so I decided to approach the piece from a place of storytelling rather than speaking for people when I felt it wasn’t my place.
This short animation is loosely based on Plato’s theory that we were originally born with two halves; some were female/female, some were male/male, and some were female/male. The piece is about the coming together of two halves to make a whole, whether you want to read it as two lovers or two parts of one person is up to you.
Song is the opening to “Your Only Doll” by Laura Marling
I did an illustration of Adam and Eve as part of my gender studies class; this assignment was about fluidity between genders, but I don’t really feel like I accomplished what the prompt was about; I’m only posting this because I like how it came out aesthetically, but I ended up re-doing the project completely from scratch.
(final product here)
so happy to announce that my piece “the bluebirds” has been accepted into the society of illustrators west exhibition! if you’ll be in LA sometime in march, be sure to check it out, there will be lots of great work!
