The Attic - 2017

“The Attic” reimagines musical artist Professor Elemental’s song of the same name as an animated film. While the song is the primary inspiration for the project, I have used it as a starting point and let my research into the Victorian era, the Steampunk genre, and the work of artists like Sydney Padua (“The Adventures of Lovelace & Babbage”) to guide my design and story decisions.

“The Attic” features the nervous and precocious young inventor Adalaide King, who is assistant to her grandfather, the renowned eccentric Dr. Isembard King. When her grandfather sends her to retrieve a mysterious black box, Adalaide must gather her wits and courage to face a variety of strange creatures and  failed experiments in the dangerous and strangely labyrinthine attic.



Scaél Eitilt (Flight Story) - 2017

Flight Story is an animated short featuring Lucy, a young witch who is curious to a fault. Using fantasy and fairy tale elements, along with a touch of Irish architecture, Flight Story speaks to the consequences of curiosity without compassion, and the importance of looking outside of ourselves to see the consequences of our actions on others.

A senior project in partial fulfillment of the Allegheny College BA in Studio Art. Four months and around 200+ hours of work. Pencil/Brush Pen and Paper & Adobe Animate.
