This video was a big step for me. Up to this time I had never really used Adobe Illustrator to, well, illustrate. Since then I have become a big advocate for it. I felt an affinity for Tom Waits the first time I heard his impossible voice. As soon as I started learning After Effects I knew I would animate something of his.
I really like how my illustrations turned out. I'm still working on finding a more organic means to animate my art.I'd like to revisit this project one day and take it a little further.
