A medley of creative endeavors
FLOWER GIRL SERIES, 2014.
Art & Illustration
The Flower Girl Series is a personal passion project made for Instagram. Inspired by whimsical summer flowers and color-changing fall foliage, I played with the idea of nature-inspired gowns, giving life to fashion illustrations. To see more works, check out this blog post or search #sophiaplayswithflowers.
"COMPOSE VS COMPRISE", 2016.
Stop Motion Animation
I produced, filmed, and edited a stop motion video explaining a "common confusable," the words compose versus comprise, using paper cutouts as engaging visuals. This video was made for Dictionary.com. Click on screencap to watch the video.
SHANNON IN STYLE, 2014.
Photography & Layout Design
"Shannon in Style" is a twelve page editorial-style spread of a fictional fashion magazine featuring Shannon Kim, a friend and fellow artist. Starting out as a fashion photoshoot, we conceptualized a garden party theme, picking out outfits and suitable shoot locations in Orange County, California. The photos were created and published in this magazine spread.
This project can be viewed here.
FASHION ILLUSTRATIONS, ONGOING.
Digital Illustration, Visual Design
Fashion illustrations for personal use and work. Using Adobe Sketch and Apple Pencil, I simulated various styles of drawing using digital brushstrokes such as watercolor, graphite pencil, acrylic paint, and ink marker.
MAURA FOX ENCAUSTIC ART WEBSITE, 2016-2017.
Working with encaustic painter Maura Fox, I revamped her portfolio website and blog, www.mfoxpaints.com, taking photos of her artwork to create a gallery archive of paintings and descriptions.
Architectural Design and Video Production
The Vellum Furniture Competition is a design competition and exhibition at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I designed and constructed the Copper Pipe Chair, and filmed a short video showing the process. Read more about the project here.
remembering vista grande, 2016.
While working as the in-house photographer for Cal Poly Corporation, I documented the retirement party of one of Campus Dining's beloved venues. I got to direct, film, and edit this mini documentary.
SECOND CHANCE SUPERHERO, 2017.
Video Production & Filmmaking
Working with classmates from Cal Poly's ISLA 341 Storytelling class, I worked on the production, cinematography, and editing of this short film we made for Poly Cuts Film Festival 2017.
Second Chance Superhero is the story of a young ex-con who finds a new sense of purpose when his parole officer sets him up with a new job.
Personal Advertisements, 2013.
Advertisement & Photography
Personal ads for my sister's high school volleyball yearbook pages.
Combining my love for photography, graphic design, and portraiture, I experimented with mixed digital media. Shown here is a double exposure photo and a vectorized graphic.
