Abstract: This document is in support of my thesis work, a series of illustrative images. By allowing readers a closer look into my creative as well as technical processes, I hope to provide a guide to my visual artwork. I will describe the process of how I created the series of images and the environment in which they existed. My thesis exhibition consists of a visual interpretation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story, "Rappaccini's Daughter" dated 1894. The two modes of visual expression I have employed are digital illustration and installation. Digital illustration is a broad term that references the use of one or more digital tools to create images. Installation is a way of creating a focus on objects and their placement within a specific space. The intent of my thesis exhibition was to marry the final illustrations with an installation of my studio source materials as well as objects of inspiration for the final illustrations.
