Erika is a graphic design student at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX. She made this comic in Zack Dubuisson's Design I class. (Zack is a former student of mine at IU Bloomington, where he got his MFA.) Zack's assignment specified an eight-page abstract comic, with each page having a 3 x 3 grid. We will feature here a couple more of the resulting works in the upcoming weeks. Erika writes that she "enjoys actively depicting scenes and emotions inspired from her own life with a variety of two-dimensional media forms, including but not limited to drawing, painting, and photography. The comic was inspired by the process of doing a play and all the emotions that process creates."
