  2. an assignment for my design for storytellers class; our teacher asked us to take something grotesque and make it beautiful using simple shapes (as inspired by dario argento’s suspiria and sam raimi’s cinematography).
my topic was ‘starvation’, and i used informal subdivision, which i learned from the really amazing and inspirational kalidraws at a workshop last year. it’s not something i’d want to use all the time, but it’s a cool tool for unlocking interesting compositional treatments :^)

  7. Anonymous asked: hi! i'm just curious because you listed your age as 24, but did you restart your undergrad career? i just graduated with my undergrad degree, but i'm really considering trying for calarts next year... any advice would be appreciated!

    hi anon! aaah, this issue is something i feel pretty strongly about, so thanks for asking! (though the request for ‘any advice’ is kind of vague, so i’m not quite sure what you’re looking for? i’ve tailored my response assuming that your first undergrad degree was non-art-related, as that’s what i have experience with.) feel free to clarify or ask more specific follow-up questions if you come up with them, though~
