Hello! My name is Elise Lloyd and I am graduating from Otis College of Art and Design in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Arts, with an emphasis in Illustration. Through my professional career, I have taken time to explore technical skills such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as exploring my intuitive nature of creating. I greatly appreciate the intricacies of a hand-made process, even when incorporated into a digital realm. I create art that soothes the chaos of life through surreal character design and psychedelia-inspired patterns. I strive to take my audience on an otherworldly trip away from the seriousness of life, allowing one to reflect upon their playful side.

I created a character last year named Blob Dude, and he occasionally goes on wacky adventures with his pet snake. In this series, I brought him to life on a skate deck, as well as created merchandise such as tote bags, prints, and t-shirts.
