Abstract

“Far and Away” is an illustrated pitch bible created to explore the seedlings of a longer narrative I would like to develop in the future. It presents a beat-by-beat synopsis of the first half of the plot, and is followed by a bestiary of creatures met later in the story. I felt presenting the project this way would allow me to display my strengths in children’s illustration and creature design, the two fields of illustration I would like to pursue post graduation. In this project I pay homage to my favorite Hayao Miyazaki movies, who I credit with inspiring me to pursue a career in art and taught me your dreams can achieved at any age. In this paper I also explore my artistic process, and how I approach creature design; followed by the career path I plan to follow once I leave Syracuse University.
