The Rat Story

For the final project in my Sketching Communities class, I illustrated and programmed a children's website storybook called The Rat Story. One of the goals of the class was to interact with a local community, and to learn how illustration and design are influenced by the communities around us. For my project, I chose to focus on the community of Washington Square Park and the visitors there, who mutually shared a disgust towards rats. With their stories, Gretchen Erlichman and I were inspired to create The Rat Story. I want to give special thanks to Gretchen for her musical performance, narration, and ideas.
