Texts from Mom

I decided to visualize my relationship with my mom through different text messages I've received in the past. In order to make the animation more visually appealing while not detracting from the messages, I decided to rely on subtle messages and blur effects over scenes I illustrated.

 

Process

I used this project to experiment more with solely using Procreate as an illustration platform. Each of these scenes are either visual representations of the texts or are specific to different memories that I relate these messages to.

 

After creating my illustrations, I animated each of the scenes using Adobe After Effects. I had each scene move subtlety as well as the clouds in the window scene and simulated tired, lazy eyes as a reflection of my response.
