Self Portrait, Graphite and Digital, 2014

My name is Annee Schwank. I received a Bachelor's of FIne arts majoring in illustration 2014.  My interests include observing life around me, pop culture, news, rock history – anything that is socially engrained into our minds. I aim to hold the viewer’s attention long enough to explore a visual narrative in the way I see it through social commentary. Being fascinated with the expressiveness of line and the association of color and emotion, I strive to make illustrations in the simplest way I can. It is impossible not to be absorbed by the news and information, the modern media offers, whether it is depraved, pathetic or indifferent to me. Those influences become evident in my work.
