Work Experience

Freelance

Illustrator

I worked for an independent client on a 28 page comic he had written, with the intention of self-publishing. The work included 20 pages illustrated in pencil, and 8 illustrated in watercolor, on 11"X14"comic board. I was responsible for panel layout, lettering, character design, editing, and overall illustration. We communicated back and forth on the project through e-mail.

Rhode Island School Of Design Office Of Government Relations

Research assistant, illustrator

While at school, I work at the Rhode Island School of Design's Office of Government Relations. My primary job is as a research assistant, but I also have created artwork for the office, specifically a 6 page comic promoting the idea of STEM to STEAM, which the office champions on behalf of RISD. I have been invited back to work in the fall, but due to a tight schedule on my part will not resume working there until January of 2014. I have learned valuable skills at this job, including research, confidentiality, putting together professional e-mails, spreadsheets, and lists, and working on a deadline.
