I Follow

Flip book2013

3.5 x 1.5 in

I Follow is an ongoing series of computer generated flip books for people that I want to keep in touch with. Each book shows a creature chasing a balloon through a landscape, calling for it. I choose a balloon color and a call noise based on the person that will receive each book. The creature, landscape and animation are randomly generated, but imitate my hand drawn marks. This sense of human gesture is amplified by transferring the animation back into the printed form of the flip book.
