This is a series of 6 oil paintings I completed for my Illustration thesis at Ringling College of Art and Design. For each piece, I wrote a very short story to accompany it. In some cases, the words came first, followed by an idea for the image. For others, the composition and figure's attitude led the way to the written piece.
I'm fascinated by insects. These tiny creatures often go unnoticed, and when they do make themselves known they are commonly seen as pests or something to be feared. Yet, they are actually complex, intriguing, gorgeous little creatures.
These are two environments I created for Light Grey Art Lab's Great Personality Exhibition.
Great Personality was a non-traditional show featuring artwork inspired by the Myers-Briggs Personality Types, exploring the science behind attraction, ambiance, and allure. LGAL released four interactive sim games, where players could interact with 32 characters through a series of conversations, choices, and exploration through a new and unknown city. My environments were featured in the games as well as exhibited as art prints in the LGAL gallery space.
