  • This project involved creating a theme-based symbol set from a single grid system. I decided to make my symbols about fine art paint application tools and their attributes. Along with the symbol set, we were required to make a book featuring them. For that part of the project, I created a ring-bound booklet like one might find in an art store for the purpose of explaining the symbol system to customers and helping them with their purchasing decisions.
    In another class, we were given the the assignment to create a 3D animation utilizing one or more of the symbols we created. My animation became an advertisement for a fictional paintbrush company, Sable Paintbrushes.  It was also the first 3D animation I ever attempted.
