Ghouligan was a story developed over senior year for my thesis. It takes place in the fictional town of Galwyck, Massachusetts – a modern day haven for witches designed as a Halloween-esque tourist trap. The story follows 15 year old Aspen, an adopted half witch half ghoul, who hides her ghoulish side under the guise of hooliganism and makeup. However, when the town discovers that she’s a ghoul and a centuries old demon is released the day after, everyone blames Aspen.
The art style took heavy inspiration from Laika’s style and one of my main focuses design-wise was to mix the old, typical witch aesthetic with modern technologies and looks.
