One of the first projects of my master's program was a zine project. We were taught simple bookbinding and formatting, and were encouraged to experiment. The zines were to be featured at an upcoming book fair in the city. I decided, since Halloween was near the deadline of the project, to make a small scary story. One that I imagined could be told around the campfire, and which would look like a small storybook.
Fantasy map illustration done for Christian Bacchiocchi, to be included in his master's thesis. His thesis was a fantasy story, and this map depicts the major territories and cities of the setting. I worked with him to determine the basic geography, and took references from famous fantasy maps like Middle Earth and Westeros.
Illustration done at Frederator to be used as a transition in a video. The video featured fan art of Stephen Universe done in the styles of other cartoons. Keeping with that theme, I illustrated this scene combining Gravity Falls and Stephen Universe.

For one of my first assignments of my master's program, we were given an open-ended project; we were to bring in a piece to show and critique that shows something about our working methods and style. I based this digital illustration on Link, from The Legend of Zelda series of video games.
In the second week of October, Stashriot began a series of Halloween-related sales. I was assigned to complete a series of illustrations to promote the sale, incorporating both the theme and the products being featured in the sale itself. The images were formatted for use across the major social media platforms that Stashriot employs (namely: Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram), as well as in their email mailer.

Editorial illustration for Impulse Mag, a publication based in Edinburgh. The article was about seldom-visited spots in Edinburgh, and they wanted a stylized illustration to go along with it. Out of the destinations, I picked Blackford Hill to be the subject of the illustration, with the signature Observatory being the focus.
One of my projects while at the ECA centered around the Waters of Leith, a river that runs through the city. The class walked along the river for a day, drawing and taking notes. We then received a formal brief which called for a repeat-pattern that was inspired by our time at the Waters. When the project was complete, the prints went on display at the Waters of Leith Visitor's Centre in Edinburgh for a special exhibition.

One of my undergraduate classes focused on fairy tales. We had a project looking at the tales of Uncle Remus, and the classic cartoons that followed them. I chose to focus my piece on the tar baby character. It was selected to be featured in Plain China, a national anthology of undergraduate writing, though the article it was paired with fell through.
