For as long as I can remember; I’ve always been inspired by animated movies, illustrated books, and graphic novels, often drawing my favorite characters in my free time and obsessing over their designs and how they came to be. These mediums made me truly appreciate art and animation, making me fall in love with its style and the art of conveying storytelling through images and expressions. I made my first character when I was about fourteen, and from her, I spawned a series of other characters within her world, and I simply haven’t stopped.
I genuinely enjoy creating characters and giving them a life and personality of their own, befitting their design, and placing them in their own fictional world of my imagination. Most of my work is usually contained within my vast array of sketchbooks I’ve kept over the years that show the development of my art style and skill, which I’ve had a hard time sharing for years, only recently coming to share it with others.
During my time here in Advanced Studio, I have been pushing myself to create a digital drawing at least every other week, to practice and hone my craft and improve and familiarize myself with an area in art that I definitely feel like I could improve with. My final project is a display of my progress throughout the year, a timeline of my improvement.
After SUNY Ulster I plan to:
I am transferring to Suny Fredonia to major in Animation and Illustration.
