Major: Traditional Animation, 2025
My name is Kara Dominique Garcia, and I’m a freshman majoring Traditional Animation and minoring in Illustration. I live in the suburbs of Chicago, and have been coming to the city all my life in dream of attending a great art school such as this one. My designs and concepts come from personal experiences, aesthetics, and inspirations from the world around me, with ideas that flow through the works of animating scenes or creating visual narratives. The sketchbooks I carry with me tend to hold the first of many drafts and designs that can end up as final projects or maybe even little stickers and goods to share with the world. Though I am a freshman I hope to make an impact and growth in my own work and be a part of a wonderful community of artists who share the same passions as I do.
