design + illustration

About

 

hello!

I'm Allissa. I'm currently attending the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, where I'm planning to focus on Communications or Environment Design and minor in Human-Computer interaction. I'm also a self-taught artist, and hope to incorporate illustration & comics somehow into my future.

Different kinds of narrative & storytelling have always fascinated me. I'm interesting in seeing how they would play into the field of design, whether that means design that tells a story or design that considers the stories of the people who use it.

In the spare time that I don't spend drawing I might be reading obscure Wikipedia articles, trying to teach myself new skills from the internet, or looking at pictures of birds.
