Margaret is a traditional and digital artist who focuses on character design. The main focus of their work is women of color as they are under represented in fashion and media. These pieces are to show that women of color can be ethereal, pure, and beautiful. The zodiac pieces are based on the story of Gravitivity. The zodiac gods were fighting and sent an asteroid into the planet causing the gravity to be unbalanced and causing people and objects to float.

Animator and Illustrator
For this Gravitivity course, I decided to create a series of looping animations using Blender. The three animations are all a combination of 2D and 3D animation techniques, and are a visual representation of every day objects in anti-gravity space. The goal is to be in theme with the new anti-gravity world that we created through the Gravitivity course. I wanted it emulate the futuristic, colorful and and innovative vision I had for this new world through animation. I also created the anti-gravity Cat illustrations for the pop culture magazine.

Avery enjoys working with both traditional and digital media in the art world, focusing on combining unique textures and colors together in order to create a truly enigmatic piece.

She loves to experiment with different techniques, so when presented with the opportunity to do so on this project, she jumped at the chance to work with elements and their ruling planets. Avery was also very excited to create pieces showcasing strong female leads. In order to really emphasize their different but equally powerful strengths, Avery made sure to focus on placing them dynamically among the page.

I wanted the projects I worked on this semester to be emblematic of what I enjoy making as a creator, but I was entirely pleased to use Professor Neal as an inspiration, both directly and as a guide. With him as the centerpiece of the project I worked on the most this semester, I had to make it look as grand as the man himself, so I hope the amount of polish I put into that piece can be seen. But even without his direst placement into my work he still had a role in guiding and inspiring me throughout this course. After all, the idea for creating anti-gravity devices was his from the start, he only asked me if I could make them into an artistic representation. I worked on all of my projects on my own, and after having worked on them for so long and with so many hours of effort being put into them, I'm happy to say that I'm proud with what I've created. The animated version of the logo is the first real 3D animation that I've done before and I am extremely pleased with how much I've learned over the course of the semester.
My name is Davey Newton and I am a Senior about to be graduating in AET! I am a videographer, photographer, motion graphic artist and musician. Since my emphasis is in Digital Visualization, I have not taken many music classes in AET, so I wanted to make a Lo-fi EP for this class to switch up the rhythm of my college career.
