Here are some story ideas inspired by my trip to Avignon, France. It was super medieval and festive, so I wanted to capture that. The layout is based off of the Palais des Papes (one of the Pope’s old castles in Avignon), and was stylistically inspired by the legendary Mary Blair.

Here are some pages from my travel portfolio class sketchbook! We explored really interesting places such as ancient ruins, castles on top of cliffs, and bustling cities.  I’m experimenting with abstracting some of the forms (especially the more structured ones), to create a more organic feel to them.

So while I was in Paris, I went to a jazz club with some friends and dang it was so inspiring! It gave me so many story ideas.  There was a really cute trumpet player there and I just had to draw him lol

Here’s some stuff I’m working on for my Location Research class in France! We had to create a story based off of a specific location, and so I picked St. Remy in Provence, France.  The story is still in the works! Here are some concept ideas!

Some layouts/concept work inspired from my trip to Pont Du Gard! It was super fun, we dove off of cliffs right next to the ancient Roman aqueduct. It was awesome!

Here’s a layout I did for my Location Research class!  I’ve been feeling super inspired lately by nature, pattern, and color. Also, I’ve been looking at illustrations from Mary Blair and Amélie Fléchais.  There will be more of these to come!
