Between days as a motion designer, I illustrate a story about a boy in an infinite forest. It's a dark and dreary world. Full of quiet. It's a lesser-traveled place inhabited by ghosts and monsters. Animation brings to life this otherwise silent and foreboding world.
This project is a space for me to explore techniques, as well as grapple with difficult content. The internet and webcomic venues present an occasion to challenge our short attention spans. The boy spends long stretches of time confronted by little more than snow, cold, wind and the sound of his own footsteps. In a medium otherwise occupied by loud, impactful visuals, this narrative is a departure.
