... You like anime? ... No? Well, you do now.
Tora-Con is an annual anime convention held by the Rochester Institute of Technology's Anime Club. Each year, thousands of attendees gather for a weekend to appreciate anime, gaming, cosplay, and other aspects of nerd culture.
I have had the honor of being a staff artist since 2014 and becoming the Media Director for our 2016-2018 events (and, believe me, I'd keep directing if alumni could be directors). Head of the media team, I guided a group of artists to provide visual content including badge art, guide book content, social media images, and advertisements. I now spearhead the convention's social media.
Here are a few examples of my contributions over the years.
