An animated message always attracts more attention
On this page, I’ve shared some of my shorter animations. I created these little snippets both to show what I can do and to refine my skills. For example, to test new software, a new style or a new technology.
What are the benefits of animation?
Animations – meaning moving pictures in combination with sound – naturally attract viewers’ interest more effectively than static images. We’re seeing more and more animated messages around us. Screens are replacing printed matter and the new technology is creating more opportunities to communicate.
My interest in animation
Animations are exciting to create. I studied 2D animation in Vancouver in the late 1990s. At that time, we drew on paper and flipped 5 drawings at a time between our fingers to see how they moved. A lot has happened since then. These days I can animate, draw and add sound and color in a single program. On this page, you can follow me on my journey as I refined my talents in animation.
