Here are all 9 pieces from my first thesis project!
At the beginning of the semester, I read folktales from around the world and sought out interesting imagery and characters to develop into 9 full page illustrations. As I made each illustration, I did a ton of research into the clothing, symbols, patterns, and other related imagery from the each story’s culture.
I am fascinated by old stories and how they have been passed down and shaped future stories. I learned a lot from this project, but I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface! There is so much more to these unique cultures, and I’ll continue to draw inspiration from them.
For each individually, and some process sketches see the links below:
All are available as prints on my inprnt!
Thank you everyone for your support over the past year! Here’s to a great 2014!

Goldfish, ordinary on earth, were now
miraculous, their glitter precious currency,
their tiny mouths’ O and O a greeting.
So that when they died some men wept,
feeling, as if for the first time,
how grave a life is. Any life at all.
