A block and an animation. American designer makes great art with an idea in mind and few resources available. The message is to be able to express yourself always, as the only limitation is in ourselves.
Matthias Brown is restless by nature. That is, even at the coffee table or in waiting rooms, this graphic artist is always working. It is at these times that, with a pad of paper and pen, makes animations the old fashioned way. From this versatility was born the series Trace loops.
The method is the rotoscope, the technique of drawing in a block every little piece of film that moves with the passing of leaves at high speed. Created in 1915 by Max Fleischer, today we know these little scenes by animated gifs. Made with few resources, the result is rudimentary. But it's amazing to see how art can come from small gestures. Just have… animation! In the early days of the year, it takes a lot.
Here are some examples of this work.
