video/animation experimental pieces

The following video pieces are a part of an expanding project in which I’ve been documenting myself over the past 5 years.

Willodean‘s ‘Glass Bottom Boat’ was made in collaboration with fellow illustrator, Lauren Briere of Austin, Texas. See more of her work here.

The result is a quaint, charming and visually pleasing video that perfectly accompanies the relaxing, gentle and wistful sounds of the song.”
