Some people go for a run when they're stressed out.
Others do yoga, some eat nutella.
I draw and animate these. And then I eat nutella.
Inspired by my personal necessity to communicate with friends using moving images, I realized there's a lack of a artistic representation of LGBTQ-themed GIFs on social media.
In response to that, I created an Instagram account called Gaynimation where I concept, illustrate, and create short animations that explore all things LGBTQ+.
DRAWING FOR GOOD
In April of 2020 I posted on my Instagram Stories that I'd draw my friends' pets in exchange for a donation to support health care professionals working in NYC. My friends, and their friends, and their friends' friends jumped at the idea. Dozens of illustrations later, our collective donations were turned into care packages for nurses across multiple NYC Hospitals.
For International Women's Day, we created and designed an internal campaign based on data research done at 22squared. First, we created a website that posed a simple question to all of our female employees:
What's the one thing you hate being called at work?
(All answers were anonymous).
Using the data from their answers, we created a series of posters meant to make every 22squared employee stop and think about the words they've often used around the workplace when speaking to - or about - women.
