Both an experiment in animation and an homage to the video games of my youth, I initially began making pixel animations on flights, as the meticulousness of their construction lent itself well to being confined to a plane seat. I build these pixel by pixel, introducing a deliberateness and a tedium that helps to slow me down and consider the placement of each element. This process is one I’ve detailed on my blog.
