Illustrations / Explorations
Illustrations and personal projects that mostly surround the themes of self, body, and emotion. I am interested in telling small stories with narrative illustrations, and communicating a feeling through the use of color, shapes, and motions.
"Faces" is a series of illustrations depicting past emotions and thoughts. It all began with a simple prompt: design something that embodies the word "reflection", whatever it means to you. With this prompt, I made a self-portrait reflecting a side of myself that isn't obvious to most, showing how looks can deceive. Since creating my self-portrait, I was hooked on the idea of depicting things that are unsaid or inconspicuous, or thoughts that don't leave one's head easily. For this purpose, I created a collection of faces that use the literal head space to express a feeling or thought, all with a straight face.
