Alaya Howard is a student graduating in May with a BFA in Digital Media and Illustration. Her main goal is to one day create her own animated television show; whether that show be for kids, adults or both is still something to be considered.
She wants her work to be seen as light hearted on the one hand and political on the other hand. This will probably lead her down different paths in her animation career. Either way, she wants her audience to have a nostalgic experience when viewing her work.
Perhaps her main passion is portraiture and gestural drawing. This type of art allows her to expend energy both physically and artistically. Thus, she often incorporates portraiture in her illustrations and digital media work as she finds the human face to be extremely interesting and helpful in the development of characters.
