Rachel Ann D’Agnilli’s textured animated creatures showcase resilience as well as softness. During her time at PCA&D, D’Agnilli completed a mentorship with Alex Gomez.
Her thesis is an educational children’s show called “Bluja and Bee” that follows the characters Bee and her dog Bluja as they use a magic book to identify wild berries.
Following graduation, D’Agnilli plans to continue creating her own characters and storytelling with animation.
