Erin Forgit is a cartoonist from Williamsburg, Virginia, currently a junior at VCU.

“Artwork serves as a link to the past, revealing the inner workings of society. It stands the test of time despite the incessant ticking of the clock. My work represents not history, but herstory…

Just kidding–I do art because I like to.

My artwork has always been about creating humorous, pleasing, or just unique images. I don’t like to fill my work with convoluted ideas. Much of my artwork features fantasy elements, animals, cartoon-like figures, and fantastic creatures. My artwork recently has been focusing on traditional figure drawing with a “caractured twist” and dynamic poses. I worked as a caricature artist at Busch Gardens VA one season in high school and the skills I learned there in such a short time have been increasingly incorporated into my more recent work. I am a Communication Arts major at VCUarts who is pursuing a career in character and conceptual art in the film industry, video game industry, or for any individuals who are in need of a visual for their personal endeavors. I thoroughly enjoy bringing life to others visions by giving them a visual representation of their ideas, and I hope to begin doing that professionally.”
