Multimedia students host portfolio show for capstone class

Multimedia seniors hosted its annual Senior Multimedia Show at California Lutheran University in the William Rolland Art Center on April 23 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. 

Students, faculty, and attendees were able to view different pieces created by the seniors in different art classes such as digital art, photography, and a video game.

Attendees were welcomed by many different pieces such as “The Chinese Zodiacs” by senior Alyssa Maxey. 

“I am part Chinese, and I’ve always been very heavily surrounded by my Chinese side. My painting is of all the Chinese zodiacs, and it just reminded me of growing up in my grandparents’ house,” Maxey said. 

Maxey created another piece, a Chinese Topography digital art piece along with a mock brand “The Chubby Dumpling” she hopes to open one day.

“My poster is a watercolor-inspired background. And I used Chinese type, and that means prosperity. That’s just always something that my parents and grandma have said growing up. That’s just been a meaningful symbol throughout my life,” Maxey said. 

The show included “Chino the Chinchilla”, a video game created by senior Christian Anderson.

 “I just wanted to try to make a game that’s a little bit more bigger, grander, more in the lines of what people think of traditional games instead of what I made last year, which was an endless runner-type game, just that quick mobile game. So I tried to make something bigger,” Anderson said. 

Anderson said the game consists of five levels that each have a different theme and collectibles. The game was also displayed and available to play at the event. 

“It didn’t try to be anything too fancy, and it didn’t try and overcomplicate things. It just gave us something that we all know and love in the way it’s supposed to be, and they just pop out in style. In a bold style and ambitious sense of nature. You can tell they mean business,” attendee and senior Angel Prado said.
