  13. Hey everyone, this is my final project for  my advanced sequential class! It tells the intro to the story of the game concept I was developing last semester.

    I’ll probably be printing these as zines at some point, I printed one for my commencement show and it turned out great!

    Sorry for the lack of updates recently, I have officially finished all of my work for my undergrad at MICA!!!!

    this is like one of my favorite finals ever - Nicole, Xanthe, Matt and I made this CARD GAME!!!

    it’s called SENIOR PRANK and the premise of the game is that you choose a character and try to get back the stuff that belongs in their locker - while also trying to steal everybody else’s valuables!

    we had SO much fun making this and I think it turned out really great.

    Hey everyone! This is the big final project for my maps class! I made an amazing game with my friends Mickey, Nicole and Xanthe! We had so much fun doing this, and the game actually turned out really great.

    Be sure to go check out their artwork if you haven’t already, they are all super talented and inspiring.

  15. Anonymous said: what brushes do you use?

    I use custom brushes that I created with a scanned graphite texture. I’ll make a bit of a tutorial on this in the coming months.
