So here’s some concept art for a new graphic novel project underway; it’s definitely falling into the “middle grade” reader category, which is unusual for my work but I am very, very much excited for it :)
Like maybe too excited and getting ahead of myself haha, but well, enjoy a few weeks’ worth of concept sketches to get this idea off the ground! And yes, I do note that Salita is NOT the prettiest heroine ever but well, that’s part of her scrappy, adventurer charm
As a student at the New York University Summer Publishing Institute, I was part of a three-week project to bring a start-up magazine to life from the ground up. As the Digital Director, my task was to come up with our digital strategy, as well as any supporting wireframe images and mock-ups to illustrate our ideas.
These mock-up designs were created in Photoshop; I also later provided support for the layout of our magazine by laying out text and images in InDesign and copyediting proofs before print day.
With our unique take on our snarky, Millenial-themed food magazine, Silver Spork, we won a class-wide contest that judged our concept to the best (and most viable) magazine pitch.
Once upon a time I worked on a mobile app as the Art Director for a proposed game that blended mythology and monster collector games. Though it never got off the ground, I still am proud of the creature concepts and general feel for the game that I worked on, and that resonates with my love for fantasy—and perhaps a plot straight out of a classic middle-grade reader
