Major Project: Drawings and me

For my Major project, Phil, Alan and I have come up with something quite unique to create. It will focus on me and my drawings, and how drawing makes me feel. The final product will aim to be a documentary-style animation with 2D and 3D elements, with as much of my art incorporated as possible.

Phil and I exchanged emails and slowy have built a 'script' - with me answering questions, such as how i cope with depression and anxiety through drawing. I'm incredibly excited to do this project!

For some of the more finished pieces, I would love to animate them like this:
