INK was my undergraduate thesis animation at the University of Southern California, School of Cinematic Arts, John C. Hench Division of Animation & Digital Arts. We follow Penny, a girl with fountain pen nibs for hands, as she searches for a way to express herself in a city of chalk-people.

It also earned the Discovery Scholar medal, for "articulating the requirements and relationships between theory and practice regarding the complexity of an animated film in idea and execution while also representing humanitarian values and insights into the human condition and/or advance the values of understanding and tolerance."
