Line Animation

A while ago an artist friend, Brian Piana took a masking tape piece I posted on Tumblr and turned it into a quick Gif animation. (I chose not to post the gif itself because it’s jarring on the same page as the Gif below.)

That, and some other artists I’ve seen on Tumblr playing with animation have made me want to learn about it. As such, I’ve been experimenting in my free time with some basic tests.

This is the most successful so far, made of 9 individual 4.5″ x 6″ cards of masking tape.

I still have a lot to learn to help myself automate and simplify the process so that basic animations look more smooth and don’t take an inordinate amount of time, but I have some ideas I’m slowly working out that I’ll share as they’re ready.

The idea is to create the animations, then bind the individual frames into their own books to get the experience of sequence in 2 different states.
