About Me

Hi! I'm Jolie, a freshman at Bradley University Majoring in animation and minoring in creative writing! Animation, art, and storytelling have always been my passions. It's my dream to one day create my own animated series. When I was 13 I even wrote scripts for a show pilot. I put them together with a pitch bible and sent it to a bunch of networks! Since then, I've done a lot of original character design, digital art, and written many short stories! I really enjoy mixing comedy with genres like Action- Adventure, Science-Fiction and Fantasy! I'm going to be open for digital art commissions this summer. Right now I'm currently working on Epithet Re-Erased, an independent re-animation project on youtube! I'm excited to finally be taking the first steps towards working professioanlly. I hope all of you will enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed making it!

Blaze's Smile

The 88 students in IM 150, a design fundamentals course, were assigned a poster series in which each student chose a topic that was of personal interest, an exciting event or socially important issue. The students rocked the house; seen in the totallity, the students’ diverse voices and beautiful final solutions are a symphony of visual communication. In this attached selection, of many other excellent poster projects, the various aspects of the rubric are exemplified. The students were tasked to design an eye-catching design experience, which would be viewed from a distance, with the following criteria: • Create a clever concept and call to action (see if you can find the concept in the Chi-Town Blues Festival Poster) • Make connotative art which referenced the visual venacular of the subject matter applied with the elements of design (shape, line, texture, space, size, value), or drawing skills. • Adhere to a a grid (and consider breaking the grid). • Communicate to a specific audience. • Select a palette from the color harmonies. • Organize all of these elements into a dynamic relationship that activatesthe principles of design (balance, contrast, emphasis, focal point, rhythm, unity, and the Gestalt theory). • Finally, they applied their work to an environmental wall—an expresion of place—which supported the original concept, and sustained communication with the audience.
