Game Design, Illustration, Character Design, and Photography

Bio

I myself am a very visual person since I come from an artistic background. But I do take interest in the concept of Game Design, Illustration, designing characters for games, and photography for inspiration. I’m currently working on smaller projects on my own time to both benefits my knowledge on coding just to help improve my own work while having a better understanding of my work and why it works the way it does.

My Clubs

EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

A space to create & playtest digital experiences. Come make video games, immersive art, AR filters, websites, and literally anything else you can think of— every other Thursday @ 1-2pm. If it’s creative + involves tech, we’ll do it. (We’re 100% online for Fall 2020! Meet us on Discord: https://discord.gg/sQUjMN6) Every 2 weeks, we pick a new topic (apps, environment art, interactive fiction, 3D modeling…) and challenge you to make a mini project on it. Each one comes with tutorials, inspiration & download links— so you don’t need any experience to join. Find your dream role, have a support system for when you get stuck, team up w/ other students for passion projects, or just try something new. Check out our website for free assets, example code, scholarships, jobs, and more :)
