I designed a mock campaign ("Add to Your Fruity Side this Summer") for Forever 21's imagined dressy summer line. Inspired by Richard Avedon's photography, I art directed, styled, photographed and edited these photos to tell the personality of these four fruits: kiwi, lemon, kiwano melon, and raspberry. Each fruit carries its own alliterated slogan that best represents this personality and color. "Lively Lemon," "Kissable Kiwi," "Ravishing Raspberry," and "Moody Melon."
Since 2014, I have been an art director and illustrator for The Wake Magazine. During this time I managed and coordinated interns and the art for each issue. For each piece, provided revisions for the interns and created my own illustrations.
Though all of these images shown were created either during my time at The Wake Magazine, a few of these illustrations were done as part of a smaller illustrative role for editorial projects.
I worked with vector illustrating, digital painting, acrylic painting, watercolor painting, pencil and pen.
VoxHouse is a digital directory of local DIY musical groups and house venues in the United States. The concept arose from a niche need; all the show bookings have been done previously by word of mouth. I saw this as an opportunity to create a digital pace where bands could book shows, review the houses they play at, find a place to stay, get in contact with the venue owners directly and showcase their social media links, biographies and photos. House venues could add bands to their bills, review the bands that played at their house, post any house rules, post a bio and post photos.
The design was inspired by a the flyers designed by the community and 80s/90s post modern punk and grunge design. The Broke Haus photos were shot and edited by me. The other images were crowdsourced from the band members and venue owners themselves.
Inspired by the many ways people interpret visuals and their ability to communicate them, I decided to take on a project where I photographed a model turning her head 180 degrees in 16 frames. I found 64 individuals (mostly strangers) presented them with one of the frames, giving only three minutes for them to draw the image.
If you scroll down or up on the homepage, you can see the images change from one to the next, resembling an animation of her head moving the 180 degrees.
By hovering over the 64, A, P and C, the rest of the words (64 Ways of Drawing One Face, About, Portraits, Credits) become revealed. I chose to hide these pieces in order to give a undistracting gallery space for those watching the animation.
I curated the experiment and results as well as designed and coded this site. The site currently is no longer hosted, but I will get it up and running again soon.
