This is the final piece I have to post out of all the work I created for my final semester. I think it perfectly sums up how it was my last term - juggling a lot of things all at once. Congrats to everyone who graduated!

My next step was the break the story down into eight key moments and engineer it. An earlier post shows what the spreads look like before I illustrate them. Here are some photos of the finished book. Everything was printed at home on my Epson printer and cut out by hand before I assembled the pieces. A big thanks to an awesome photographer, Jen O'Sullivan, for taking fabulous photos.

Right now, I'm wrapping up a few final projects. This is one I created for my Science and Sustainability class. I call it my 'green quill' since it's green and about environmentalism (the focus of the class). GreenWorks by Clorox is actually a truly environmentally friendly product. It costs just a little bit more in the store, but I hope more people buy it. I think it's worth telling companies people are willing to make small, everyday changes for the environment and that will encourage more companies to start creating products like this. Total time....30 hours?
More to come soon!
