Sigh Loop

New experiment with hand drawn animation. A few layers in this one – the original animation, plus two layers of it with distortion, and a non-animated clip overlaid, also distorted.

Lots of possibilities available, obviously, between traditional and digital animation, but I’m most interested in being consistent with my voice and adapting the technology and technique to it. I am definitely not interested in doing what is taught in classes and books, what is standard and what is known.

The effort to keep what isn’t relevant to my aesthetic and artistic aims far away from me is a weird battle. But I trust my instincts and my work process, and enjoy doing things I’m “not supposed” to do with my tools.

Anything else would be a cop out. God forbid.
