The Walk

2D animation 10m21s

I've been working for a while with a good friend of mine whom I met in Santa Fe, Orlando Leibovitz. Orlando has a long career working as a painter and illustrator. He has a unique style of illustration and long ago asked me to assist him an ongoing curatorial project, the Six Inch Gallery, in which Orlando illustrates and 'hangs' work in a six inch illustrated gallery. The project has continued to evolve over the years, culminating in our current collaborative project The Walk. The work draws from a lifetime of Orlando's archived illustrations to build an intricate living world.

Orlando and I collaborate across the country, sharing files via cloud storage, with story,  illustration, and visualization by Orlando and animation, structure, and scene design by myself. The work was exhibited as part of Currents New Media 2018
