This is a topic that means a lot to me. For the past few months I have researched this issue from all angles and now being tasked with making a info-graphic about this information was just a matter of taking all the research I had put together over the year and making vector graphics to match. After selecting a color pallet and making vectors I believed would bring home the message of my research I formatted it all together to make an interesting yet informing PDF.

Attempting again to put the information of this continuously growing problem into visual representation. I will try and put the data into easier to understand representations to bring the scale of the issue into proportion.

Process for Joe’s Zelda Piece

As many people may know our amazing “IT guy” Joe Sabo is a huge fan of Zelda. I myself have never played a Zelda game but my brother loved them so I knew enough to spark a conversation with Joe about it. He told me he loved my style and would like to see how I could mix it with the world of Zelda. So I got to work, I did some research on the big baddy from the games and the different iterations he went through over the years. The one known as “Pig Ganon” stuck out to me the most. I made a sketch turning this already big bulky monster into something far more scary. I then looked into where Pig Ganon would reside in the games where he appeared and found this grey blocky tower and loved the retro feel so I decided to keep it as simple as possible. Next I needed some narrative, Ganon is always after the 3 pieces of the Triforce which is a sacred golden relic left behind by the Golden Goddesses, Din, Nayru, and Farore. Each piece represent a virtue, wisdom, courage, and power and each virtue is represented by a color, blue, green and red (respectively).

All in all what I put together for Mr. Sabo is the mighty warlock Ganon standing triumphant over a defeated Link (the viewer) holding all three pieces of the Triforce with his dark tower looming in the distance.

“Suicide is the rare killer that fails to inspire celebrity PSAs, 5K fun runs, and shiny new university centers for study and treatment. That has to change”

These words and the ones that follow are what gave me the idea to do what I’ve done. Make art in attempt to make people start talking about how they feel in and try and break the stigma that looms over this very real problem facing us all.

Tell someone you care about them today, let them know they mean something to you.
