Inspired by the dreams and imagination of a child at heart, Skylar Cordiano-Mooney shapes characters through digital paintings and animation. Her thesis consists of a young girl experiencing the loss of a loved one and using that love to grow something much larger than herself. Within this short, she is showcasing her illustrative skills through character design of the forest creature, and textural designs of characters and environment. In her time at PCA&D she has worked as a co-founder of the Esports branch, a co-designer for the 2022 spirit wear, and a featured illustrator along the walls of the halls. Her work is often showcased to incoming students as an example of PCA&D’s artistic capabilities and she plans on continuing freelance work as soon as she graduates.
