The Light In The Dark (The Optimist)
hand drawn digital video animation
edition of 3
The Light In The Dark (The Optimist) hand drawn animation process involved covering many pieces of drawing paper with graphite pencil until the surface was unable to absorb any more. The many nonrepresentational drawings were then photographed with a flash and set in motion with the sound of the reverberation of pencil on paper, revealing the illumination within the blackness of the graphite surface, and pointing to thoughts of optimism in an otherwise dark void.
