Recently I've made a bunch (and by bunch I mean 39) of "ink flowers", colorful roundish designs that resemble abstract flowers and I composed them into a short animation exercise. I also used an eye from an old painting (scroll down to see the original art). Music for the video is, as usual, done by Alkaline Samurai (Arlen Dean) who is still kind enough to let me use his beats for my experiments in motion.
Few days ago I finished working on my little blue/purple paintings, scanned them and composed them into this simple experimental video inspired by color theory, a meditation on color of sorts. I loved working on this and it was a good warm up for working on more experimental animated videos in future.
I had a lot of fun doodling on brown paper using charcoal and ink pens and I also caught it on camera and made a short stop-motion animation (you can see it at the end of the video). Sound is by Alkaline Samurai, used with his permission of course.
At the very end of the video you can catch a glimpse of other silly charcoal+ink doodles I made or you can scroll down to get a better view of them.
In November 2008. I bought my first Moleskine notebook. During the years, every now and then I'd write down something in it. Last time I made an entry was in June 2013. and yesterday when I picked it up I found out there were only two blank pages left in it so instead of writing something down I started to doodle and set the pages in motion :) It was fun little exercise and I'm looking forward to do more. When I showed it to my mom this evening she screamed "Carnival!" so I guess it's also appropriate to post it because today is carnival day in Croatia.
