I'm a 21yo senior at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). I'm majoring in Illustration (Animation concentration). Enjoy browsing my work!

First assignment for my Animation Pre-production class.  We had to make some designs based on an obituary, so here’s the late inventor of Sweet’N Low listening to “Sweet’N Low” the song.  :)

The new semester just started! Here’s some work from my Collage & Assemblage class so far. :)
