Being an artist is humbling. With it comes creative mania- and also an awareness of the world that gives a unique perspective on the world. I've known I wanted to do more than just design something beautiful. If there was a way for my platform to design something beautiful and gave relevance to who that person was as a person---wouldn't you strive for that? The project I'm submitting I did in part with the company I work with- Super News Live - and I was lucky enough to create these gifs of the best picture nominations. When animating my favorite gif, of moonlight, I was drawing two black boys kissing, and it's powerful. It's love and it's art, and I want to do more of this. Create beautiful images with meaning.
