The Scarlet Dark
an original graphic novel (2022)
current project - Procreate
22 year old Noa lives a very secluded life in a small apartment in New York City with just their cat for company. Ever since they were little, they've seen strange figures out of the corner of their eye and shadows that seem to follow them wherever they go. Recently, they’ve gotten worse and more vivid. These creatures seem to follow them but they know they’re just their imagination, right? So, they try to just ignore them until the opening scene: they just can’t go back to sleep one night and decide to get up and go to their favorite coffee shop. On the way, they spot the most beautiful girl they've ever seen: Ivy. She disappears but the two end up at the same coffee shop, start talking, and exchange numbers. Noa somehow feels like they have known this girl forever. The visions seem to go away when they're together. But, something isn't right. Ivy starts acting guilty like she knows something. Was meeting the girl of her dreams all a coincidence or is there something more cynical behind everything?
I created this queer horror/romance novel for my Graphic Novel class and ended up falling in love with this project. This book is still in progress but it will be finished soon and hopefully published one day.
Are We Only Parts
completed - Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop
In my Graphic Design II course, we were assigned to create a series of six posts about a cause we're passionate about. I decided to focus on the issue of animal cruelty, especially in the meatpacking and dairy industries. I kept my usual theme of using red and so it was not too gruesome, chose medical, anatomical imagery. There are five Instagram formatted posts and one Instagram story post.
Scraps of Me
book of collages (Spring 2021)
completed - Adobe InDesign
This book as an inside look into the chronological progress of my life. It is divided into different sections that represent chapters of my life. Each page is designed to look like a scrap book that has been cut and glued together but is actually digitally made. Each page includes original poetry written by me and old photos taken by my family members. This project was created for my Digital Design class and is 30 pages of collage in total.
Redesigning Album Covers
album cover mockup series (2022)
completed - PicsArt
This is a series I decided to start after seeing online discourse over what makes a good album cover. So, I decided to take albums that already exist but redesign the covers to what I would choose if I were on the artist's team. I also have posted this series on my account @rensfaire
Custom Painted Shoes
I was commissioned to paint Air Force Ones using vibrant neon colors and a dripping effect. This was the result.
