Hailing from the borough of Queens, Sophia is an avid and eccentric spirit, active in the art & design community. She works in all mediums of creative matter, from printmaking, apparel, websites, graphic design, illustration, consulting, curation and more. In her spare time she enjoys frolicking through the park with her dogs and giving them unconditional love.
After looking through the footage captured by VC+SA and going through the graphics designed by the students during the creative workshop, I was inspired by the different approaches each student had towards designing their own football pattern. I loved the way one student drew the sun as one star with many spikes, filled in. Another student had a defined lions face.
