I have always had a passion for art and travel and I thought what better way to share these two passions than to create my Travel Journal.
My senior project is a series of illustrations showing my travels through three different cities. To create a sketchbook feel I used watercolor with pen and ink line work to depict all the activities, places, and restaurants with descriptions and some fun facts.
I wanted to create stylized illustrations that make the viewer feel like they are there in the cities with me.
Watercolor is one of my favorite mediums! Here are some examples of my recent work
Confusion In Copenhagen
Editorial Illustration about an american living in the bike friendly city of Copenhagen and trying to learn how to ride a bike in the busy streets.
Everyone is familiar with the childhood stories of the Tortoise and the Hare, The Goose with the Golden Egg, and The Boy Who Cried Wolf. I especially have fond memories of these stories and so I wanted to create a book cover for Aesop's Fables that included a lot of the main elements from those stories. This is an oil rub and color pencil drawing to give it that older look with a warm undertone that unifies the piece.
The stories that I chose to include are:
The Crow & The Pitcher
The Lion & The Mouse
The Fox & The Grapes
The Tortoise & The Hare
The Town Mouse & The Country Mouse
The Goose & The Golden Egg
The Shepherd Boy & The Wolf
This is an alphabet I created to be used for individual use for custom monogrammed products, such as party invitations, stationary, and bags.
I enjoy experimenting with typography and these are some examples of holiday cards, birthday cards and personal projects.
Watercolor birthday card I made for my dad with a fishing theme because its not only one of his favorite pastimes but he taught me how to fish.
An experimental drop cap symbol of an exclamation mark working with combining multiple styles and textures made for the Ringling Ligature show.
Our family holiday card that I made for winter of 2014. Interesting fact: my dad started this tradition when I was born, sending out a drawing of me every year until he passed the job down to me when I started at Ringling.
Here's a look into my sketchbook work :) I love working on lettering and watercolor
