This year, my work has revolved around the theme of playfulness in adulthood, exploring playfulness as a mindset and questioning how this mindset can be incorporated into everyday life. I have established that play is an inherent facet of our beings, and that play is a mindset that can often be overlooked in adulthood. Thus, the majority of project ideas this year stemmed from this concept, and from a desire to promote a playful mindset in adulthood. This project is an illustrated version of my dissertation, aiming to promote this mindset. In the future I hope to continue working in illustration, producing work that inspires play.
