Anansi the Spider progress

Recently I have been working on a paper cut style animation with some other alumni from Art Center. The story is based on the folklore Anansi the Spider, written and directed by fellow alumni Elizabeth Bayne. I'm designing concepts for all the backgrounds, some of the characters, and I'm building all of the backgrounds and characters assets from paper.

We have actually been on this project for almost a year now, here are some most recent updates from me. I'm in the process making all the final assets, aaaaalmost ready to be animated!

To follow the progress of the project, follow our project blog here
