Designing a Forest Cryptid
Under the mentorship of John Mahoney (Disney, Blizzard) I set out to “create a totally new creature.”
• My background in science (BA Scientific Illustration) made this goal especially fun and accessible – I tapped into my understanding of anatomy and physiology, and created something new and fantastic.
• My thought process was: “What two animals definitely don’t go together?” and “What body parts can I add to any existing animal to make them cooler?” This was the result!
