Hello and Welcome!
I am Rebecca Celsi, a 17 year old artist, animator, and designer.
 
I've been interested in art, animation, and design my whole life. I have recently begun to do commissioned pieces, and I have also been hired as an artistic mentor and designer. I am centered in Portland, Oregon, where I work out of my dad's studio on the third floor of the house (hence the term StudioAttic.) I attend Grant High School where I am involved in the art, science, and music programs. 
      My brother Ben Celsi, 20, often works with me, creating music for my animations. My dad is David Chelsea, a professional illustrator. (Note the alternate spelling- it shows the correct pronunciation of our last name.)
     I am excited to be showcasing my projects! Please contact me here with any questions.
               ~Rebecca Celsi

Milan Erceg's feature documentary, 24 Hour Comic, premieres at the Laurelhurst theater in Portland on Thursday, july 7th at 7 pm. This event is 21 and over, but there is an all-ages matinee the next day Friday, July 8th at 4 pm. 

Both events will be followed with a Q+A session with the artists and filmmakers. I'll only be able to attend the matinee however. 

If you can't make it to the screenings, the film is now available for pre-order on iTunes and will be available for purchase on July 11. Showing your pre-order at the door will also give you free entry to either screening!

Jazz Concert (and poster!)

February 19, 2017

The annual Sweet Sound of Jazz concert is fast approaching, and I once again designed the poster for the event. Come on February 24 to the Grant High School Old Gym for a fabulous fund-raising event and some great music. 

I wanted to share the poster here beause it turned out especially good and i am quite proud of it. I made the instrument shapes 'from scratch' illustrating them by hand in illustrator. Overall a nice balance of colors and a good composition.

24 Hour Comics!

October 12, 2016

I finished my SECOND 24 Hour Comic event on October 1st and it is now posted here in its entirety!

In 24 Teachers, I recount every teacher I've had my entire school career- from kindergarten until 10th grade. Learn every curious quirk, personality trait, and poignant memory from ten years in the imperfect PPS School System. Everything is my real experience.

While my teachers' likenesses are represented here, I have changed their names for privacy's sake.

I am also posting my FIRST 24 Hour Comic, The Life of Leaf. This comic follows the adventures of Leaf, a precocious squirrel who sets out to follow his dreams, find his place, and encounter love.
