Scholastic Book Fairs/Tangerine Press
Cornell Museum of Fine Art
My name is Ebone Grayson, an Orlando/Oviedo based designer and illustrator. I am a University of Central Florida Alumni receiving my B.F.A . in Graphic Design in 2016. I've been illustrating since I was a child and I feel like I'm living my dream to be able to exercise my childhood passion into my professional life.
I've had the opportunity to work alongside Tangerine Press in producing activity kits and diaries that were sold at the annual Scholastic Book Fairs. I've also recently teamed up with Cornell Museum of Fine Arts in creating an up coming children's book that will be available sometime in 2018.
In 2016 I participated at Creative South's Ink Wars, where 8 contestant are given 1 hour to illustrate on a randomly announced topic on a 7 foot white canvas with on a marker and a pencil equipped. At the time I was the only student participant and placed 3rd.
I strive to challenge myself in learning new techniques, trends and programs on my free time. It's important to continue to self improve and keep up with the ever evolving world of design and web.
You can catch me crying over k-pop idols into my matcha boba tea in my spare time.
