Identity Suit/I looked inside myself and saw what wasn't there, 2016

Study of Peers examine the works of three peers majoring in Illustration. Through small scale studies, directive and nondirective interviews and collaborative journals, I created replicas of their undergraduate projects on a personal level,  examining the effects of visual proliferation and reaching mass audiences, a key factor in illustrative work. Time sensitive, both the original work and studies were presented within proximity to each other during the grad show. Commentaries between the artist and I were recorded and displayed in a sketchbook.

This project along with all the originals were exhibited in THE SHOW , the Emily Carr Graduation exhibition of 2016.
