Illustration Classwork

Last Fall I completed my Degree at UCF, at that time I was enrolled in Intermediate Illustration with a focus on narrative illustration. The class was taught by Giant Illustrator Christian Slade of Korgi books and currently Ranger Rick fame. It was an awesome class experience because it enabled me to do work that I normally do to de-stress at the end of the day. I love graphic design but my first love was illustration and storytelling and I still try to incorporate elements of that into my commercial art and design as well.

Below is some samples from my portfolio for that semester. All work is copyrighted Cosmic Radiation (Krista Hunsicker) 2015 including original story ideas presented here.
