  • Companions Zine
    While studying in Japan during the summer of 2017 I maintained a journal of the dogs and their human companions that I met each day. I documented the time of day, weather, and feel of the moment, creating a whole recollectable moment around these encounters. This is a very personal piece that really reflects my personality and my design style.
