April 19th (when this was uploaded) was my mom's birthday
Animation celebration!

It is a mix of things she likes - working out, riding her motorcycle, tea etc.
And some more generic celebratory scenes like the balloons. Though, who doesn't like balloons?!

Info for the video crowd:
I used this as an opportunity to experiment and mix and match a bunch of different techniques and styles.
There's some clean, geometric stuff in there, some handdrawn frame by frame stuff, a little bit of live action and a wide range of different looks in the visuals.

All of it was created with photoshop and after effects and animated at 12fps cause I am liking the look of it recently.
I also used this opportunity, unlike all my other work, to not plan anything! I had some super rough ideas for a couple things when I started but kept adding to it and coming up with new stuff.

Worst idea ever to do for client work but really fun and refresing for a personal project like this.

In the very end I found the perfect track and layered a bunch of sound fx on top of it.
