Design Week Portland

Illustrations for the Education issue of the Design Week Portland Journal.

The illustration concepts were largely inspired by this passage from the article: "People like to say we’re natural creators, that we’re born with a desire make things. I believe that just like love, we should consider that everyone has an impulse to create they just need to be taught how to access and act upon their innate creative energy. This is where creative practice ought to come in, and where our current education system would do well to veer into the less-charted waters. This includes those nontraditional educational models that are traditional models for creative practice, and by extension creative consciousness."
