It’s an animation about the joy of reading where a prison inmate describes how he escapes being cooped up by reading books, in a 40-odd second diatribe.
I used red calligraphy ink with brush and a blue Indian ink brush pen to do the typography and biro, watercolour, gel pen, and Indian ink for the backgrounds. I recorded the dialogue and the music is from a song I made the other week ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDmvpxKoevE ). The books he mentions towards the end are, in order of appearance, The Colour Purple, Slaughterhouse 5, Of Mice & Men, and American Psycho, all American novels and I don’t know why that is. Just books I’ve read, ergo, books I could quote.
The watermark is there because I had a lot of trouble exporting it, and after a week, this is the best I could do.
