Drawin' of me, Laura!
Thanks for dropping by! I'm Laura Edwards, a graphic designer and story artist based in the Washington, DC metro area. I specialize in brand design, digital multimedia such as UI design and motion graphics, and illustration, as well as storyboarding and comics (you can check out examples of my story art at my other site).
In a nutshell, my main passion behind my work is helping people feel seen, especially those who feel misrepresented or underrepresented in media or otherwise just plain invisible. I believe that stories, as well as art in general, play a quiet, but important role in society that can help people understand another perspective to a subject or problem that they may not have considered before. They also let people know that they're not alone in a thought or feeling they have, even if it's something like "Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only one who likes to roll up their peanut butter bread like sushi before I eat it!"
When I'm not working on art-related things, I love to cook, learn about weather, earth sciences, and psychology, and jam out to video game and show soundtracks (the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series is criminally underrated).
