Brown Bag Lunch
Brown Bag Lunch

A logo I created for the "Brown Bag Lunch" event series hosted by the Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion office. Created on Photoshop. The luncheon session occurs multiple times throughout the term where attendees are invited to participate in a conversation with a guest speaker. Each session involves discussing a topic and so I went with the design of a paper lunch bag and a coffee cup to play with the idea of "unpacking" and a lunch session.

ANIMATED ILLUSTRATIONS

As a hobby of mine I started a YouTube channel at the end of my first year university. My intention was to document my experience as a university student trying to balance her school work, personal life, and her passion for video editing and storytelling. IIn 2021, I was inspired by TikTok users to use the Procreate app to make short animated illustrations as a way to personalize my YouTube channel and improve the overall content.

 

ILLUSTRATIONS

Illustrations I created using the Procreate app which includes portraits and personal artwork as a creative outlet.

The Sirens Call

I made a mock-up illustration for a radio drama I created titled, "The Sirens' Call". The sirens call is an allude to manic episode that one has during depressive states, where the darkness of thoughts reel you in, and you feel like you're tredding water for a while until you're actually drowning in it. Illustration digitally hand drawn on the Procreate app. April 22 2021.
