Student designs underrepresented comic characters for practicum requirement
Hayden Mountain Horse, a second-year Multimedia Production student, is using her artistic skills to create conceptual characters for Anemoia Studios, a production house and talent agency promoting diversity in the entertainment industry. Through Riipen, she secured a practicum with the studio and has been illustrating characters for a comic under the guidance of Bej'a Christmas, the founder and CEO. Mountain Horse's work has been praised for its brilliance and aligns with her passion for art and creating diverse representations in media.
“Hayden is an incredibly talented student,” says Kris Hodgson-Bright, instructor for the MMP Managed Internship course. “Thanks to Riipen, she connected with an American designer and found something she was passionate about. The work Hayden has done with Anemoia is incredible and I hope it provides some amazing opportunities to kickstart her future career.”
