Ana Iurov a 2nd Year Illustration Student has created a story in style of graphic novels and webcomics however with a unique twist of animation.
As the final project of the 2nd year, we were offered the choice to create our own brief. With that, I decided to go ahead and create the comic to a story I’ve been working on for a while now.
I wanted it to be unique to other graphic novels or webcomics out there, so I combined animation with the otherwise basic page layout. Sometimes there’s more happening, sometimes there’s just one small thing, but more pages have a little bit of movement. Not all, but most.
The story itself is pretty self-explanatory; a boy whose emotions were sealed away and his friend who wants to show him how much of the world he’s missed because of that.
It’s a short little thing, only 25 pages long, but I’ve been told it’s visually pleasing as well as emotionally striking as it tackles emotions which are a huge part of our lives.
