New year, new video!
Jeroen from animography.net approached me with a pretty cool idea again, the last being Franchise animated (vimeo.com/70470864). This time it was a free canvas, with the only requirement to use one of the typefaces on the site. I was honored to be the first one to do Animography Monthly! But It was a crazy December for me and I was running out of time, so I had to give myself a few restraints:
· Had to be done 1 day.
· Had to fit the style of the Isotype font. (designed by Ryan Locke)
· Had to somehow tell the story of being a dad or becoming one. (since our son/daughter will be coming to this world in a few months :D)
So "Being A Dad" was born, an animated experiment on the weird but awesome blessing of being a dad.

Huge thanks to my wife Emmy Lou (emmylouvirginia.com/) for helping me come up with ideas for this and to Tatalab for making beautiful numbers (tatalab.com/Yorokobu-numbers)
& most importantly thanks to God, for the wonderful gift and miracle of life.
For Animography Monthly: January. (And I can't wait to see what the rest of the group comes up with for the next months!)
