Hello to all you cool cats and desperados out there. I'm Meredith and I'm an illustrator/animator with my BA in Art & Design from NC State. Illustration is my forte, but I'm always branching out and challenging myself to do more. I love design because it provides me an outlet to express how, I imagine, the world could be. . I'm attracted to concept art and character design because I'm in awe of people, flaws and all.
I’ve had quite a bit of experience in graphic design but I enjoy the process ten-fold more when it’s set in motion.

I draw to connect myself to the world and feel that I learn a little more about who I am with each pen stroke.
I love design because it provides me an outlet to express how, I imagine, the world could be.
Here I've selected a range of projects that embody my foothold in design. I love the conversion of digital and traditional media and find a playful marriage between the two when I work. I focus heavily on character design and the story-telling aspects of illustration and animation.
A screen printing project to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. This pieces was intended to be viewed both upside-down and right-side-up and was inspired by the Hanged man tarot card.
The purpose of this project was to incorporate adinkra symbols into a repeating pattern. The assignment also included experimenting with layering transparent inks. I created a motif based on the symbol “akoben”.
Black Snake Moan
We are all cyborgs!
An illustration studio final. The assignment was to create an editorial illustration for Amber Case’s TED talk on cyborg anthropology. My idea came from the use of fairy tale imagery as being a well-recognized and iconic cultural meme mixed with technology and internet references.

My Life Long Identity Crisis
Date: Spring 2011
As part of a multimedia course, we were assigned a 1 minute animated autobiography. The animation had to include the use of puppet-like rigging and show 5 different scenes or anecdotes to tell the story. My story is about overcoming the pressure to change oneself to fit in and finding out who you really are in the process.

This is a freelance project I did for a small local business. They asked for a short animation that explained their business practices for the launch of their website.
Q-art Project: Andy and Opie
Client: Raleigh Arts Commission
Date: Fall 2012
The Q-art Project is a collaboration between the NCSU College of Design’s Multimedia studio and the Raleigh Arts Commission. Our assignment was to create short videos to profile public works of art and my first project was the sculpture of Andy and Opie at Pullen Park. Because of copyright issues, I could use any footage, audio, or photographs of Andy or the Andy Griffith show- so I chose to illustrate all of my video assets. The Q-art Project logo was designed by Jaime Andrews, Lowerthirds by Dwight Davis, and the Intro/Outro sequences by myself.
