Life update, Spring 2017

Hello readers / viewers / art appreciators!

spring update 1
Here I am signing my name on the wall of the Pulp room at The Daily Orange house. It’s a tradition that when a head editor (the type of job I had) leaves their section, they commemorate their work by leaving their mark in Sharpie. I chose to sign next to my mentors and best friends at the house.

As some of you may know, I had the honor and privilege of serving as The Daily Orange’s feature editor this semester. We had a really wonderful year, producing some quality content about a socially-conscious rapper and his relationship with his father, Syracuse Arsenal fans, and medieval history enthusiasts.

We also executed a long-awaited two-part, front page-worthy series about the Syracuse refugee community. We even got an inside look into a refugee family’s first 24 hours in Syracuse.

Next semester, I will be The Daily Orange’s head illustrator, which puts me in charge of illustrations to accompany stories. I’ll get to recruit and organize artists as well as make some art myself. I’m excited to take this next step in my Daily Orange and artistic career.

One of my duties as head illustrator will be making the paper’s cartoons, affectionately dubbed “Scribbles.” I’ve already done a few, which you can view here.

I’ll continue to write stories while I’m working as head illustrator.

When I interviewed at Boston Magazine, I spent a bit of time sketching in the Northeastern student coffeeshop Pavement. I’m excited to hang out there and try more stuff on their menu.

In other news, I have accepted a position interning at Boston Magazine. It’s right on the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Huntington Avenue, for you fellow Bostonians out there, so that’s exciting. I can’t wait to get into the city starting May 15 and expand my journalistic horizons and help the BoMag team pump out some cool stories.

I’ll also have time to start painting again this summer. I hope to venture into plein aire and become more realistic and accurate with my forms.

Thanks for reading, and I can’t wait to share everything right here on my site.
