This work I did in shop was a project to make an animated GIF with a Neon Sign light effect, based on the previous work of another Neon Sign of Pizza Planet. We had full creative control in this project, and I decided to choose a Pokemon them for this, as I felt it would work interestingly well for this subject, so I brainstormed and concluded to do the main series' mascot, Pikachu on top of a sign that is labeled "Pokestop". It is not displayed in this image above, but in the GIF format, it is moved in a way for each light piece (Name and portions of the Pokemon.) to move one by one until it fully lighten up with bright colors, and animated the Pikachu moving its arm and down, along with the winking and opening and closing its mouth. I found this project to be enjoyable and fun to do with the creative freedom I had in this subject.
Photoshop & Indesign ~ CoolScience Poster. This is a project for developing a submission for "CoolScience" We had to make a poster that had a meaning of climate change. I chose the question "What inventions are people making to reduce the impact of climate change?" and answered it with this poster, using a windmill. To create this, I had to use photoshop to draw and digitally paint a landscape of a sunset and its windmill, this took me a short hour or more, I then exported this finished file into indesign to format it in the proper size of 24 x 9, with a 1 inch border. Once formatted I added the text and finished it into this project. I found this project to be mostly enjoyable with the creative freedom I was given, so I was able to have fun and use my skills to create this project.
Illustrator & Indesign ~ Save the Date. For this project, I was assigned to create a postcard for a wedding, the mandatory things needed was its theme, and text needed, the theme of it was Beauty and and Beast. I used a image from the movie "Beauty and the Beast" and both referenced and traced the image in illustrator. Once I had finished I imported and added the image into indesign, to make the text formatting and its additional details. I found this project to be both tedious, but also fun, I was happy with how it turned out once I finished and was overall a fun piece in the Wedding project.
Photoshop~Raccoon Animal Psychology. For this project we had to develop a set of an animal using both color combinations and a animal that can have a distinct visual appeal. I chose to choose a Raccoon for is special pattern on its face, it was a visually interesting trait and was able to be known easily. I used photoshop to create the raccoon, using black and white and then going over in colors using the overlay function. This project was fun for me, and also challenging as digitally painting an animal is a much more newer concept to me and a fun learning experience.
Indesign ~ Caitlin's Cupcakes. For this project we had to make a menu for our fictional cupcake shop. I used indesign to create and put together my menu, it was a easy to set up project with an enjoyable payoff, as I am satisfied and happy with how it turned out. My main goal of the project was to give a cute-theme to it, with pink and purple hues, and it was as good in concept and execution.
Photoshop + Indesign~ Old Colony Homecoming ticket. The following project was made in development as a homecoming ticket for my school, and was an attempt to make it similar to a passport, as requested. I chose to make it similar to the American passport and replace pieces of the image to look more from old colony, from creating a cougar in Photoshop by hand, and making the type work for the ticket. I had fun with the experience in Photoshop and Indesign.

Psychedelic Art ~ Illustrator; The Following was a project for my Sophomore year when we had to create a Psychedelic art piece.
