ART IN MOTION

For years I have racked my brain thinking of ways to animate my hand-made art. I have tried stop motion, overhead cameras and even drawing apps that record your progress. None of these experiments captured the dynamic build and emotion that I felt was comparable to parallel with my fine art. I wanted something that I had more control of— a way to capture the build in a surreal way, but also keep the integrity of my hand-made art in tact. So, I taught myself motion graphics. I am by no means an expert in motion graphics, but I know just enough (and am learning more and more) to be dangerous. I scan in my original art separately; ink drawings, print making prints, collage pieces and other media. Then, I build my composition,  create storyboards to guide me through the motion and movement, and them use After Effects to execute. I ma just getting started and every time I create an animation I learn more an more. And the best part is, my fine art style almost begs to be animated. Below are four animations I have created so far using my original art created on paper.
