PhilaMOCA is an art gallery and event space that shows movies, video game tournaments, bands and art shows. When I was working in the Career Center, I heard they were having an Eraserhead (a David Lynch film) inspired art competition and I considered going because it is a lot of stuff I’m interested in – Philadelphia bands, movie screenings, etc. I helped out at shows at the front desk taking admissions. I had the opportunity to make two posters for two different shows. I did murals outside in August.
I loved the internship at PhilaMOCA and all of the projects I got to do. I think it’s great that all students have paid required internships.
I learned new skills by designing the posters.. They showed me templates and taught me what printers expect. I was able to work with audio and lighting for all the concerts.. I’m also doing a poster for a Neil Diamond show that they have coming up.
I am interested in doing character design after I graduate. I would love to go out to California and make the characters that they use in movies
