I've been working hard on a rotoscope animation and accompanying art pieces off and on for the last year. I am excited to share this work with the world.

A rotoscope animation is a frame-by-frame animation based on a video. This is how animation used to be done, even Disney movies like Alice in Wonderland. It is a very involved process, with each image hand drawn. Hundreds of art pieces combine together to form a moving picture. I executed the animation using my iPad and a drawing program called Procreate. I also took individual frames from the animation sequence and created art pieces using spray paint, and acrylic paint on wood board. The art pieces never would have come about if I hadn't followed my inspiration to make the animation. I hope you are able to come out and see it all in person!

An NFT of the animation will be up for auction at 6PM on July 7th.
