Faculty member Julia Vallera recently spoke with about illustrating and animating her experiences on the Baja Divide.

In the interview, Vallera talks about how she developed her interests in drawing and biking and how she combines those interests on her biking treks. While on the trail, Vallera fills up sketchbooks with drawings from each day that then become the basis for fleshed out illustrations and animations after the trip. Recently, she's been taking photos on a disposable camera and drawing on top of them once they've been developed.

Vallera currently teaches Motion Design for our master of arts in graphic and web design program.
