This design was created for a personal project book pitch, 'To Water the Stars.'
I created this project as a way to explore the metaphor of what 'watering stars' could mean. I connected it to creating art and nurturing projects, and healing and helping. The story and imagery became a way for me to explore my own fears of failure in a way that has made them more approachable.
Throughout much of summer, fall, and winter of 2020, I designed prop assets for
CenterStage in Lake Forests' Shakespeare Online series. I'm so saddened by how hard the theater community has been hit this year (HUGE musical and Shakespeare fan especially!), and so embraced the chance to help celebrate and share Shakespeare using a digital platform. The assets were then animated by the company's digital editor (I've added the animations to the below ones), and sprinkled throughout various Shakespearian monologues during the episodes.

Motion Pieces for 'Our Planet Week 2021' Challenge
'Dinners for Siblings' Personal Projects
These pieces were created as gifts for my brother and sister for the 2020 holidays. The idea was to create little moments of calm and coming together over food. They evolved into motion pieces designed to loop and continuously evoke quiet glows of happiness :)
