What can I say? I love GIFs and have been making them with Photoshop’s frame animation function for years to do anything from captioning TV scenes to showcasing my work. I hope to make more motion graphics in the future.
2019 to 2021
3D objects modeled and rendered in Maya. Inspired by countless video game assets, including Donut County. Do you lack the zest of a lemon looking forward?
Experimenting with the physics tool in Blender while following along with Andrew Price’s popular donut tutorial. I’ll get it right one of these days! In the meantime, enjoy this funny GIF of a donut and a donut box phasing through a table.

The Avatar’s Love
A short motion sequence for part of the song “The Avatar’s Love” from Avatar: The Last Airbender. This is a sequence of images selected from a set of 108 I made in under two weeks using all sorts of media including ink, watercolor, ginkgo leaves, a flatbed scanner (highly recommend), Illustrator, Photoshop, and DrawBot. It was also my first time using After Effects.
A perfect bound flipbook I made in the Parsons School of Design summer intensive, Illustration Beyond the Page. With the goal of shocking the viewer, I made a looping ending that’s kind of messed up. Sorry. Boba still slaps. Drawn frame-by-frame in Clip Studio Paint, animated in Adobe Photoshop.
A promotional video made in After Effects revealing the show art for WashU’s annual production of Black Anthology. Established in 1989 as WashU’s first ever cultural show, Black Anthology is a student-led production that celebrates and discusses Black culture in America. I was grateful to be involved with this historical production for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. As Show Artist, I created the production’s imagery for posters, flyers, program booklet, and merchandise. This promotional video was part of the annual December Drop, a social media event orchestrated by Publicity Chair Marc Ridgell.
