Illustration, BFA

Minor in Creative Writing
Thesis Project

As an illustrator, I love being able to use my imagination and create something fun and interesting. For my board game, Shining Starlight Festival, I decided to let my imagination run loose and make a chaotic yet balanced game. This game was inspired by one of my favorite games, Mario Party, and has some DnD battle mechanics as well. As a child, I made a lot of board games with lined paper, old lego pieces, and cardboard, so I thought it was very fitting to create a board game for my thesis. For my thesis, I had a completely different direction that I wanted to go in, but I am very happy that I went with a board game. Throughout this process I have learned a lot and I was and still am very passionate about game design. I love that I was able to incorporate things I love but also make it my very own game.
