the adventures of gramma + max

Received Score 6 on AP Art Test (2018)

This is a series of 12 illustrations exploring the relationship between my two favorite people: my grandmother and my youngest brother. The drawings demonstrate their intimacy, playfulness, and innocence as the story begins with my grandmother sculpting my brother out of stone. The duo then go on to fight shadow monsters, explore fantastical mythical worlds, etc.


The story concludes with a somber sketch as the boy grows out of his childhood, emphasizing the importance of cherishing moments with your loved ones while you can. Featured below are my nine favorite illustrations from the series.
