In the last installment of The Art of Trailokya, I spoke about having a limited budget with which to work. If you have the wherewithal, you’ll eventually find tools to get around your financial limitations. Recent months introduced me to an app that allows me to take still photos and animate them. It’s actually a pretty interesting concept. One might think, why not just use film clips, but the still form adds something to the art. Film is busy with motion, while still photos that have been animated have more focused points. It forces the eye to focus on just the thing, as if a snip of a moment.
If you scroll down the page, on the right hand side you’ll find a few animations I have created for my books. I have several more on my Instagram account, but not everything is focused on Trailokya. Below, you’ll find a gallery of the work I’ve done to promote the trilogy. In addition, follow this link to a video highlighting my work from this past summer.
