Name: Kathryn Borris
Year you’ll be graduating: Class of 2022
Minor(s): Graphic Design
I am majoring in Art because art has always been something I was attracted to. I loved looking at art and I loved doing anything creative and artistic. I first got into art when I started drawing my own characters. Overall, I was really curious about the artistic process.
The kinds of things that inspire me are anime, cartoons, manga, comics, anything nerdy. I overall really like the aesthetic of 2D animation. All of those things are what inspire me to make my own characters and bring life into them.
My favorite class so far was painting. I never knew I loved painting until I took this class. I found that it’s a very relaxing activity that may be a process, but that’s what’s fun about it.
When I’m not in class I am hanging out with friends, playing video games, or watching anime.
The coolest thing I’ve done so far was using a letterpress for the first time in Intro to Typography. It was a really interesting process and I had fun getting to use different equipment.
When I graduate I am aiming to become a character designer/ concept artist. I have always loved making characters and bringing them to life. I hope one day my characters will be used in a show or comic.
