The Witch Party (2023)
Photobash piece for a concept of decorating my Mom and I's house exterior to become a witch party for Halloween. This didn't end up coming to fruition as Fall 2023 ended up being a very busy period, but this first venture with the concept of photobashing was very fun!


Nautilus Salon (2023)
Given the prompt to create a model of a set for our own version of a live performance based off of a classic tale in a model making class, Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea entered my mind right away. I had fallen in love with the story and a couple of other works of Verne two years before, and the beautiful aesthetic of the Nautilus especially stuck with me. (Especially in the 1954 film adaptation by Disney- AND the attractions based off it, of course.)
This model specifically represents one of the final scenes in the story, where Captain Nemo takes one last look out of the aperture window into the vast blue ocean he's been home to for years.

Tomorrowland Projects

The Tomorrowland areas of the Disney theme parks are infamous for their tendency to quickly become outdated time capsules from the times that they were built. This is due to their nature of being areas that are based in the beliefs, contemporary designs and new discoveries of the world at the times of their building.

The question of "how we can fix this issue" was essentially raised on day one of Disneyland in 1955- Walt Disney himself was documented as being unhappy with the land right away. In 1993, Disneyland Paris was the first to solve this problem, as it realized the best way to depict the future was to view it from the past, creating a nostalgic, retro-futurist angle. Discoveryland, the version of Tomorrowland that can be found in Paris, decided to use the steampunk aesthetic found in the writings of  1800's futurists such as Jules Verne and H.G. Wells to base their designs on.

With Disneyland still suffering from the "Tomorrowland problem" (and some poor design choices made in the 90's), I decided in 2020 that I might as well take action into my own hands, use Paris' philosophy, and have some fun drawing up ideas of what I would do with the area with a realistic budget. What I didn't realize was that my ideas would constantly be changing, and I was essentially setting off on an endless "spare time hobby". To this day, I still count this project as ongoing, and will update this page to reflect my new ideas as they come.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from this endless "spare time hobby".
